We discuss the importance of environmental advocacy in The Bahamas. Gail Woon with Earthcare Bahamas out of Grand Bahama, Lynn Gape with Bah. National Trust, and Eleanor Philips with the Nature Conservancy, outline some of the most pressing environmental concerns in the country today, including balancing economic development with environmental protection, conch and grouper conservation, and tackling invasive species.
We also discuss how we can move away from the perception that concern for the environment applies only to the elite or the rich, and how we can get more of the Bahamian masses involved.
