General Information About Protected Areas in The Bahamas

The Bahamas is the largest small-island archipelago in the tropical Atlantic, similar in size and complexity to the entire Lesser Antilles. The Bahamas comprises over 700 low-lying islands and cays. The total land area of The Bahamas is approximately 1,394,000 hectares (3,444,649.02 acres). The size, complexity, and ecological isolation of The Bahamas have contributed to significant biodiversity and the development of several unique ecosystems. The largest and easily identifiable ecosystems include, Caribbean Pine Rockland Forests, Dry Green Forests, Island Ponds, Mangrove Forests, Blue Holes, Coastal Rock, Tidal Flats and Salt Marshes, Sea Grass Beds, Coral Reefs and the Open Ocean. read more
