April 14th, 2021 – Nassau, Bahamas
With much eagerness and delight, The Bahamas National Trust (BNT) is excited to unveil a new brand after 60+ years as leaders in the Bahamian environmental conservation landscape.
Since 1959, we have been at the forefront of progressive legislation to protect the environment; from the establishment of the first land and sea park in the world– the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park; the creation of the Inagua National Park to protect the Bahamian flamingo; and various other various other conservation successes that highlight our legacy. It is our hope as we undertake this rebranding journey that we carry this auspicious history with us into a more vibrant future.
This process has been one of attention and care, a prudent two years in the making. It’s with great anticipation that we finally share it with the public. Our goal is to make the BNT and the environmental field, in general, more accessible for younger generations who are the future of The Bahamas; while remaining true to what has always been at the core of our identity: passion, dedication, commitment, protection, stewardship, conservation, and transparency.
The BNT is responsible for 32 national parks- over 2 million acres of land and sea throughout The Bahamas. Now more than ever our national parks and our environment are providing solace and inspiration during the pandemic; attractions and recreation opportunities for Bahamians and to entice visitors to our shores; habitats for key species; and economic opportunities for tour operators and fishermen.
The launch of this new brand marks a new and exciting era for the organization. We want the public to know this change, while significant, does not alter our values, our mission, or our goals; we have a new logo, but the same focus.
We are BNT. We aim to be the standard of environmental gatekeepers in The Bahamas, continuing to lead by example. Thank you for 61 years of public support. We hope as we unveil our new brand, you will feel as impressed, excited, motivated, and inspired by it as we are. To follow our brand evolution, visit our website and social media channels.
