Bahamas National Trust

Conservation / Environment / Climate

The Bahamas National Trust (BNT) was created by an Act of Parliament in 1959 to build and manage the national park system of The Bahamas. Possibly the only non-governmental organization in the world charged with such a responsibility, the BNT works daily to conserve and protect the natural resources of The Bahamas through stewardship and education for present and future generations. There are currently 32 National Parks managed by the BNT with more than 2 million acres of marine and terrestrial areas protected. The BNT’s three strategic priorities are: Parks, Science, and Education.Supported by several thousand individualmembers, the BNT has a budget of approximately $6M, 80 staff and is governed by a 29-person Council.
