Conservation in The Bahamas

Supporting the Bahamas National Trust and the Perry Institute for Marine Science has molded and shaped my career as a Scuba Instructor/Underwater Photographer and Conservationist. The Bahamas has been one of the leaders in conservation for many years, our dedication to protecting our future and heritage has truly set us apart from the crowd. We have created Marine Protected Areas and Sanctuaries to increase fish populations, and biodiversity throughout The Bahamas.

As a Reef Rescue Network Instructor for The Perry Institute for Marine Science I assist in the maintenance, management and teaching of coral restoration. We are dedicated to reversing the decline of coral reefs and are committed to providing technical expertise and resources for effective coral restoration. With 30 nurseries to date spread across 11 islands of The Bahamas, our network aims to raise awareness to local communities and visitors about the importance of coral reefs and what they can do to help stop further deterioration.

In 2019 I was selected by AirBnB and The Bahamas National Trust as a local host to participate in teaching the Reef Rescue Network Diver Course to its Volunteers. "Participants will live with local hosts in Andros, Exuma, and Eleuthera, becoming part of communities devoted to supporting important natural industries and preserving a rapidly changing ecosystem.

In 2020 I wish to work with more Local and International Conservation Groups, amongst these groups are Shark Education aka Sharks4Kids. I am truly excited about this new project and becoming an Ambassador has been my dream for quite some time now. Sharks4Kids is big on providing shark educational materials along with interactive science programs. Ambassadors are able to bring an exciting element to the classroom through Photo, video, webinars and live feeds. Learn More

The goal of Sharks4Kids is to create a new generation of shark advocates through access to a dynamic range of educational materials. Curriculum, games and activities will allow teachers to integrate shark education into their science programs on an introductory, intermediate or advanced level. Students can access games, activities and info sheets to satisfy their own curiosity about sharks. Photos and videos from scientists and conservationists bring an exciting element into the classroom and show students the beauty of the ocean.
