THE Bahamas National Trust and the National Audubon Society are joining forces to focus on improving bird habitats.
#The trust recently hosted a reception, at which both groups signed a memorandum of understanding to foramlise the collaboration.
#The goal is to improved the conservation of bird habitats and key species within the national park system and across The Bahamas.
#Audubon is a non-profit organisation dedicated to environmental conservation with a special focus on birds.
#“Audubon has been dedicated to conservation effort in the Bahamas for more than a century,” said David Yarnold, president and CEO of Audubon.
#“Audubon has helped to establish the Wild Bird Protection Act, protected the dwindling flamingo population in the 1950s - which saved flamingos from near extinction, provided scientific guidance for the establishment of the first ever land and sea park in the Exumas and provided the science for white-crowned pigeons that established hunting bag limits.”
