What is the UWI Biological Society?
The UWI Biological Society is a not for profit, environmental NGO which is based at the University of the West Indies St. Augustine campus.
We believe that with dedication, cooperation and sound planning, a small group can make important changes within the society. We have dedicated ourselves to the protection and restoration of the environment and we will work together to encourage a similar sense of responsibility in others.
To promote responsible cohabitation between humans and the natural environment via the empowerment of individuals within the wider society.
Who can join the society
The society consists mainly of university students and staff of any faculty, but is open to any person interested in nature and the protection of our natural environment.
Education, Restoration and Preservation
The Society’s activities are aimed at education of our members as well as the wider public. Restoration of damaged or declining wildlife or habitats and preservation of the environment.
These include: nature tours, field trips, exhibition booths, lectures, workshops, turtle patrols, clean-ups, conservation and preservation projects.
All persons interested in joining the Society and/or participating in its activities for the academic year 10/11 can contact us from the information above, or, visit our office (ground floor Nat. Sci building).
All activities/events will be posted on the notice board outside the office and around campus.
