In the Community

Sharing and collaboration with fishermen and concerned citizens of The Bahamas is very important to Community Conch. As an organization, we seek opportunities to further our outreach on the islands where our work is based to improve our understanding of the issues, to provide education, and to share the information we have with local communities.

We hope to continue to improve our ability to make these connections with the public and especially with the commercial and subsistence fishermen whose livelihoods depend on the sustainability of the conch fishery. We are currently working with the Bahamas National Trust and the Bahamas Environment Educational Foundation to bring a comprehensive citizen science program, My Science! My Conch! to schools and communities throughout The Bahamas.  Click here to find out more!
