About Dunston’s Cave

Dunston Cave is a cave on the grounds of the Asa Wright Nature Centre, a research facility and sanctuary in the Northern Range of Trinidad and Tobago. The caves are home to a colony of oilbirds, the only nocturnal fruit-eating birds in the world. They forage at night and navigate using echolocation just as bats do. The cave is named in honour of John Dunston, a local entomologist, who helped protect the colony of oilbirds from poachers.
