The Perry Institute for Marine Science conducts research throughout The Bahamas and other parts of the Caribbean in partnership with governments, international NGOs and local organizations. We also conduct a wide range of conservation, education and citizen science programs to help protect our oceans and empower a greater conservation ethic around the world.
John H. Perry Jr. founded the Perry Institute for Marine Science - one of the oldest leading research organizations in The Bahamas - more than 50 years ago, in 1970.
Since then, we've transformed from a a site-based research facility on Lee Stocking Island to a program-based non-profit that focuses on ocean research, conservation and restoration throughout the Caribbean.
Renowned for conducting leading-edge research and ecosystem restoration with the big picture in mind, our robust and holistic approach to marine conservation is regularly featured in local and international news outlets.
