Recognizing the significance of Earth Day, on April 22, 2012, FNM spokesperson Tommy Turnquest stated the Government has a mandate to protect the natural resources and unique environment of The Bahamas, to preserve it for future generations of Bahamians.
Mr. Turnquest noted that the FNM Government, over three successive terms in office, has doubled the national park system, bringing to 700,000 acres the amount of marine and terrestrial areas protected, most recently adding marine and land parks in Abaco, Andros and Conception Island. "This is approximately two acres of preserved area for each Bahamian" he said.
