FRIENDS' education program was forever changed with the donation of two 12-passenger Ford vans. Thanks to the generosity of
Reinhold and Sabine Probst along with additional support from
Massey-Yardley Auto Dealership and Great Abaco Shipping, we have been
able to offer more field trips to local schools and lower the cost!
When we are assured that we are making a difference!
past summer camper and after school club participant DaShane Knowles
came back home from Penn State University to work with us this summer.
This one minute video shows the long term value of environmental
education. DaShane will do great things for The Bahamas and we are proud
to be a part of his journey!
The Summer of Turtles!
Patterson and Cha Boyce had a busy summer checking nests each morning
on Elbow Cay. They were able to record over 16 nests and nesting
attempts of green and loggerhead turtles on a single beach. With the
oncoming threat of Hurricane Irma, they were able to save nearly 300
hatchlings that were due to emerge as the storm passed by. One nest was
relocated, and with the assistance of Lory and Marissa, the hatchlings
were later released on their natal beach to the delight of onlookers
young and old.
**This work was done as part of the Bahamas Sea Turtle Network
partnership. Nests were moved only with the approval of The Bahamas
Department of Marine Resources. All sea turtles and their eggs are
protected in The Bahamas.
