Hello Explorers!

When it comes to superhero qualities, is there any other group of animals on earth that have captured the attention of humans more than birds? Everything about them is amazing like their ability to fly, see far distances, change colours, and sing beautiful songs. 

The Bahamas is one of the most bird diverse countries in The Caribbean with over 330 species of birds recorded here- some being found nowhere else in the world! 

Join BNT Explorer, Jewel, on her adventure to show you the magnificent life of Birds in The Bahamas! You will learn all about birds, what they eat, where they live, what’s harmful to their existence, and how to protect them…

For over 60 years, The Bahamas National Trust has been managing national parks and looking after the environment. Our work, however, involves so much more. We run award-winning educational and outreach programs, conduct important scientific research, save critically endangered species, and inform governmental policies.
Produced by the Bahamas National Trust in 2018, these short videos were originally created for our Discovery Club Kids Program (ages 6 – 13 years) and aim to introduce young people to the environment and conservation practices.
