Car Rally & Treasure Hunt
This is a fun activity open for UWI-ROYTEC students along with their family to engage in a friendly competition. The theme for 2017 was "Heroes Vs Villains". The themes allow participants to stretch their imagination and creativity in identifying costumes for teams and decorate their vehicles to win additional prizes. Teams comprise at least one Driver and one Navigator, however, more persons in the team will help in solving the clues on the trail and finding treasures. Note: team size should not exceed the legal requirement of the vehicle being used nor does the event allow for breach of the road regulations of Trinidad and Tobago.
Prizes were given for the 1st to 10th places and for the following categories: Best Decorated Car; Best Dressed Team; Best All Female Team; Best All Male Team; Best Family Team.

The nesting season of the Leatherback Turtle which has already begun, runs from March 1 to August 31. The conservation groups in Matura and Grande Riviere – two popular nesting sites, have already garnered the support of thousands of volunteers to ensure that their beaches are prepared to welcome the sea turtles.
During sea turtle watching season, there are regular eco tours to Grande, which makes going turtle watching easy and convenient. Early reservations are highly recommended.
In Matura and Grande Riviere conservation efforts on the island require that permits be purchased at the Forestry Division in Long Circular Road (225-3875)‚ San Fernando (657-7357) or Sangre Grande (668-3825) to visit nesting sites. This is for the protection of the turtles and their eggs. Both areas offer guided tours and simple accommodation in close proximity.
