WHO WE ARE

The Anguilla National Trust (ANT) was founded in 1989 with the mandate to sustain the island’s natural and cultural heritage through active management and education for the benefit of today’s and tomorrow’s generations.

The ANT has remained true to that mandate and, since its formation, we have been instrumental in the creation of Anguilla’s national parks, conservation areas, and heritage sites and continue to be involved in their day-to-day management.

We conduct essential research and conservation work, including habitat and species monitoring and we work year-round to raise public awareness about the fragility, complexity, and beauty of the island’s natural and cultural resources.

Above all, we act as voice for Anguilla’s national heritage. The ANT has been in housed in the Old Customs Building in The Valley since 1991.

Our Mission

The Anguilla National Trust seeks to be a leader in promoting, supporting, and enabling sustainable development in Anguilla.

We are committed to the conservation of Anguilla’s natural and cultural heritage, while promoting and supporting environmental and cultural stewardship. 

Our Vision

We strive to be a respected centre of environmental and cultural conservation and in doing so engender a revolution in environmental and cultural consciousness.

Our vision for Anguilla is that the island becomes a model of outstanding environmental and cultural stewardship, management, and conservation. 

Our Leadership

As a nonprofit organisation, the ANT deeply values the trust that has been placed in us.

Partners trust us to carry out joint projects; governments and private entities trust us to create solutions that serve nature and people; and members and donors trust us to use their funds to advance conservation.

To safeguard this critical trust, the ANT is committed to best practices in governance, accountability, and transparency.

This commitment exists at all levels of the organization.

Our Council exercises overall responsibility for the policies, programmes, and direction of the ANT and provides advice and counsel on a broad range of policy and operational matters to the ANT staff.
