About Wallings

The reserve also practices sustainable development and protecting the biological diversity of Antigua and Barbuda. Wallings Nature Reserve is a not for profit, non-government organisation. Wallings Nature Reserve monitors, maintains, and manages 1680 acres or 680 ha of rain forest in the Sherkley Mountain Protected Area.
