The result was the establishment of the Clifton Heritage Authority in 2004. The authority established the 200-acre Clifton Heritage National Park. The park stands as a testament to the importance Bahamians place on preserving the natural beauty of their land and habitat while also maintaining a direct connection to their history.
Thanks to the collective efforts of the Bahamian government, native Bahamians, environmentalists and conservation organizations, public access for local Bahamians to one of the last public beaches in New Providence was preserved and wetlands, tropical hardwood forests and valuable living coral reefs in the bay’s marine system have been protected.
Unfortunately, substantive new threats to Clifton Bay and other common marine environments have arisen. Save The Bays has been formed by a diverse group of stakeholders to help combat such threats. Join us in our efforts to protect our common marine environment!
