Preserving & protecting special places for years to come.
Our goals is a world-class national park system that supports the most important Bahamian biodiversity and provides economic sustainability and climate resilience for people.
Why should you care about national parks?
National parks are defenders of the environment. They are special areas that have been set aside to ensure that the natural beauty and richness of The Bahamas remain for the enjoyment and benefit of future generations. National parks are also natural barometers of our environment that tell us when there is cause for concern.
The environment is key to the Bahamian way of life-its tourism product, fisheries, food and ground water supply all depend on it. It sustains the economy and culture. To remain healthy, a country must protect its environment and preserve it for the future. This fact is what inspired the creation of the Bahamas National Trust in 1959 and today, nearly 60 years later, it is still at the heart of what we do.
