Places We Protect

We're working with government and local partners throughout The Bahamas to protect ecologically rich places for future generations.

The Bahamas is a place of beautiful seascapes and is home to a multitude of marine species. Preserving these areas and protecting these species is a national-level effort that the Nature Conservancy is pursuing through the following strategies:

  • Expansion of marine managed areas.
  • Development of the Bahamas Protected Area Fund.
  • Improving sustainable practices for key fisheries.
  • Conserving corals.

Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park

The Bahamas’ first national park, Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park is a 176-square mile park with blue tropical waters, coral reefs and forested cays.

Andros Island

The largest island of the Bahamian archipelago, Andros Island's land area is greater than that of all the other islands combined. Andros is famous for its outstanding reefs, tropical dry broadleaf forests and Bahamian pine forests that cover hundreds of thousands of acres.
