The gunshots heard almost every day at the Caroni Swamp can damage Trindad's eco-tourism sector.

This, according to the Vice President of the Incoming Tour Operators Association, Stephen Broadbridge.

The flamingoes and the national bird, the Scarlet Ibis, that tourists and locals frequently view, are being poached and Mr. Broadbridge says with gunshots ringing out daily in areas where hunting is prohibited, the protected birds that aren't caught are flying away because the hunters are creating a hostile environment.
