After more than eight years cruising in the Bahamas archipelago, we are established in the White Sound, at Elbow Cay, in the Abaco’s and have taken decision in 2015 to settle a Foundation to inform, preserve and conserve the fantastic Bahamian environment.

Bahamian diversity

Bahamian diversity is considerable both on land and under the sea, as the two are connected. Surrounded by deep water the Bahamas is a nation of islands with ~95% of the territory consisting of shallow seas. Economy, livelihoods and culture are inextricably linked to the health of oceans.

Bio diversity concerns both marine (coral fish, deep sea fish, mammals, etc.) and terrestrial fauna (over 300 species of birds, butterflies, hutia, feral horses and pigs, raccoons, reptiles, etc…). Same in regards to flora.
