Welcome to the Trust
The National Trust has been "Protecting the future of Cayman's heritage" since its inception in 1987.
The Trust is a not-for-profit NGO created to preserve the history and biodiversity of the Cayman Islands. Through education and conservation we work to protect environmentally sensitive and historically significant sites across all three Cayman Islands.
Tours and Activities
Introducing Chicken Foundation - a satirical organisation that invites people to 'adopt' one of the wild chickens in Cayman and automatically trigger a donation to the National Trust. Created by local creative agency Massive Media Ltd, who will donate money to the National Trust each time a chicken is named or the website is shared on social media! All you have to do is submit your email address and name your chicken and Massive Media does the rest! (ie no out of pocket $ for you). "Adopt" your chicken today!
Head over to www.ChickenFoundation.com and help us meet our target!
