This is a synopsis of a lecture presented by the author to the Trinidad Field Naturalists in March, 1970. The values of Forest Reserves and Game Sanctuaries are closely interwoven, interrelated and interdependent. No one value can be singled out without the interplay of another. However, for the convenience of preparing this paper these have been broken up into several headings. In this way treatment of individual values help to provide us with certain explanations and answers which in turn assist us to appreciate better the complexities and overall value of these areas.
