A Summer of Hard Work in the Bahamas

One of the goals of the Caribbean Birding Trail is to support and promote what partners are doing around the Caribbean, not only on the sustainable tourism front but for conservation in general.

I recently came across the July edition of the Bahamas National Trust (BNT) newsletter and want to congratulate the BNT on a productive summer of protecting their islands’ natural resources and engaging their stakeholders in their work.

The newsletter (click here to read) describes their success in projects like the eradication of invasive rodents from Allen Cay in the Exumas to protect Audubon’s Shearwaters and the endemic Allen Cay Rock Iguana; the identification of heritage sites on Abaco for the development of a heritage tourism plan; and the Summer Safari Camp which gives local youth the opportunity to explore the Bahamian environment.

These are just a few examples of what BNT has done over the past few months, so read the entire newsletter and be inspired for projects on your own island!
