Project Description

B.A.M.The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is working with local partners Friends of the Environment (FRIENDS) to bring mangrove education and restoration curricula to high school students in The Bahamas thru the Bahamas Awareness of Mangroves (B.A.M.).

Mangroves are a critical component of the shallow water marine ecosystem in the Caribbean, providing nursery habitat for coral reef fishes, a home for threatened and endangered species, and a natural filter for nutrients and pollutants running downstream and out to sea. They also act as a buffer, protecting people from the impact of storms and associated erosion.
