Two experts on disparate uses of land – parks and landfills — are on tap to lead a lively discussion on the ZNS radio show ‘Voice of the Bays’ Thursday, February 27 at 3 pm.
“At first glance, it might appear that you could not have two more different views on land-related topics,” said Joseph Darville, host and education director of Save The Bays, the national environmental organization that produces the show. “But both of this week’s guests share a vision to maximize the use of land in their portfolios in the best way for future generations and I think the interviews and open lines may lead to very interesting conversation and ideas.”
The line-up for the show includes Grand Bahama Landfill’s Lou Carroll and Lakeshia Anderson, Parks Planner for the Bahamas National Trust (BNT), Grand Bahama. A former assistant fisheries officer at the Department of Marine Resources, Ms. Anderson is now working with the BNT’s Grand Bahama Regional Committee on proposals to expand the Lucayan National Park and Person Cay National Park as well as developing proposals to designate new protected areas in East Grand Bahama and the North Shore. Darville’s co-hosts include EARTHCARE founder Gail Woon and Youth Environment Ambassadors’ Nikie Severe.
The show airs on ZNS 810 AM in Nassau, Grand Bahama, Berry Islands, Abaco & North Andros or 104.5 FM in Grand Bahama or 107.9 FM in Bimini. Call in numbers to join the discussion are 352-3984/5 in Freeport, and toll free at (242) 300-6233.
