On SUNDAY, November 9, 2008, Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary will be open to the public.Admission is free.“Sunday will be an opportunity for everyone to come and see the Sanctuary,” states Harry Roberts, General Manager, “We are saddened that we are closing the Sanctuary on December 15, but this is a chance for all Bajans to come and see a pristine example of their national heritage, and the beauty of the wetland before the gates close.”
The Sanctuary is part of the proposed 240-acre Graeme Hall National Park (www.graemehallnationalpark.org), of which 81 acres have been designated as a RAMSAR wetland approved under the international Convention on Wetlands. The Sanctuary is located entirely within the RAMSAR site.

In 2007, over 6,000 Barbadians signed a petition in favor of preserving the entire green area at Graeme Hall, since it is the last and largest green space on the South Coast between the Airport and Bridgetown.
