Nestled in the Southwestern Side of Antigua, in the Wallings Forest area, Wallings Nature Reserve is the first Community-Managed National Park in the twin-island state of Antigua and Barbuda established in 2018. The Reserve is being used as an international case study to garner the impact that a local community can have in making a difference in the fight against climate change while empowering women, youth and vulnerable communities and promoting gender equality.
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.
