Marine Protected Areas

The Nature Conservancy has been working in The Bahamas for more than 10 years with the government and a variety of partners to protect its natural resources for its people to use today and into the future. The Bahamas is now embarking on an ambitious project to build political support and garner long-term financing for protected areas across the Caribbean – The Caribbean Challenge. The Bahamas’ government, alongside leaders from Jamaica, Grenada, the Dominican Republic, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines launched the Caribbean Challenge, a region-wide campaign to protect the health of the Caribbean’s lands and waters. Additionally, a Waitt Foundation sponsored scientific marine expedition to Cuba’s Jardines de la Reina recently took place where TNC was a lead partner along with the Environmental Defense Fund. Read more here…
