Bishnu Tulsie To Quit As Director Of National Trust

Director of the Saint Lucia National Trust (SLNT), Bishnu Tulsie, plans to quit the post in later this year, sources have confirmed.

Tulsie’s current contract expires in October.

He has been at the helm of the organisation since 2005.

The SLNT has begun advertising the post of Director, inviting interested persons to submit their applications by March 1, 2019.

With Bishnu Tulsie as Director, the SLNT has had a sometimes acrimonious relationship with the Allen Chastanet administration, especially over the proposal to have a Dolphin Park here.

In March, 2017, Chastanet accused the Trust of being disrespectful to investors and had accused Tulsie of making ‘false allegations’.

The Trust had even announced plans to take legal action against the proposed dolphin park.

There has been speculation that by continuing as Director, Tulsie is harming the organisation and hence his decision to bow out.

The Trust was established in 1975 by an Act of Parliament to protect and preserve for the benefit of the State, places of natural beauty and their flora and fauna, and places and objects of cultural significance.

According to the organisation, it manages twenty five sites but its work is focused on its mandate at the national level.

“It is a membership organisation that employs professional and support staff to fulfill its mandate and is governed by a Council.”

  1. SHIP HIM BACK TO GUYANA OR TIRINIDAD WHERE HE FROM. SINCE 2005 AND PIGEON PT STILL DEPENDS ON GOVT SUBVENTION. SO MANY PATRONS LOCAL AND FOREIGN VISIT THE PARK AND STILL THEY CANNOT MAGE THEMSELVES. JUST SIT AND DEPEND ON TAX PAYERS MONEY. EVEN SOUFRIERE OPERATE THEIR TOURIST ATTARACTIONS THEMSELVES. SHAME. USELESS LEADER. USELESS IN MY EYES VERY USELESS. SO MANY MUSIC EVENTS AND YET STILL PIGEON PT DEPENDS ON TAX PAYERS MONEY AND WE STILL AS TAX PAYERS HAVE TO PAY TO GO IN THERE. NO VISION NO IDEAS. SO WHAT WAS HE DOING. CHOOPS TAN. HURRY UP AND GO.

    • The ignorance and stupidity of our people truly astounds me sometimes. What an asinine statement. He is not leaving of his own accord, he is being pushed out simplybecause he dared to challenge the government over the rape and bastardisation of our country. Open your eyes. As for him doing nothing for pigeon island, he is partly the reason it still exists.

  2. Its a hot job mainly because you have to deal with greedy politicians ready to sell our country to bulldozer all our historical sigts,to eradicate all memories of the past,for our future generations .Were did our ancestors cook ? what did they eat?…they never cooked they went to KFC and ate chicken.Say what you want of the man,he defended what he could,against our scaming and un educated politicians

  3. I hope he runs for prime minster at least we will be represented by someone who will not sell out the country to every hungry investor, blue eyed pirate or crooked sweet talker.

  4. Tulsie did not quit, in fact he had signalled his intention to retire a couple of years ago, and it was at the behest of the Trust membership that he stayed on, to which he accepted, indicating at that time he will retire in 2019, which almost 2 more years than his original planned retirement date. It’s there in the records, this is not fresh news, and at best poor reporting without getting all the facts.
