Our Current & Future Efforts

  • Preventing pollution from land-based and offshore sources
  • Locating, mitigating, and preventing the spread of algal blooms in our watersheds. Algal blooms are a result of excess nutrient pollution and result in contaminated seafood, human illnesses, and the death of wildlife.
  • Protecting The Bahamas drinking water and aquifer from mining, saltwater intrusion, disposal of wastewater, sea level rise.
