Marine Protection Plan
The Bahamas Protected project (A collaborative effort between The Nature Conservancy, Bahamas National Trust & Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation) submitted their Marine Protection Plan for expanding The Bahamas Marine Protected Areas Network to the Government of The Bahamas! BPAF is committed to the aims of the Project. These are:
1. Design new set of MPAs so that Bahamas has at least 20% of its marine habitat protected by 2020.
2. Increase the effective management of PAs within the MPA Network.
3. Increase sustainable funding dedicated to PA management.
4. Strengthen public awareness and support for MPAs.
