The Bahamas consists of over 700 islands and cays scattered across 100,000 square miles of clear turquoise waters.

Its ocean and beaches are not only stunning but also sustain all local economies. The spiny lobster fishery alone generates $70 million annually. It is more important than ever to safeguard against escalating threats like overfishing and climate change. The Nature Conservancy has been working for over a decade in this unique archipelago to create lasting conservation outcomes for its precious marine resources.
