Description

The Nature Conservancy works in The Bahamas with the government and local partners to protect ecologically rich places for future generations. The Conservancy has been working in two major sites for several years.

Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park is The Bahamasí first national park. It is a 176-square mile park with blue tropical waters, coral reefs and forested cays.

Andros Island is the largest island of the Bahamian archipelago. Its land area is greater than that of all the other islands combined. Andros is famous for its outstanding reefs, tropical dry broadleaf forests and Bahamian pine forests that cover hundreds of thousands of acres.

Eleanor Phillips is the director of The Nature Conservancy's Northern Caribbean program. She is responsible for the Conservancy's work in The Bahamas as well as Puerto Rico and Turks and Caicos. She focuses on prioritizing areas for conservation as well as managing the Conservancy's relationships with governments, NGOs and other partners towards conserving these lands and waters.
