Our community conservation program seeks to provide the tools, trainings, and experiences to foster a greater conservation ethic across The Bahamas and the Caribbean. By growing local capacity in marine conservation, we hope to create more pathways to conservation careers and empower the next generation of ocean stewards. Our goals for this program are to:
Build capacity for conservation careers in The Bahamas.
Promote conservation education, awareness, and action through the development of programs and behavior change strategies targeting students and key stakeholders.
Engage conservation leaders in our internship, education and volunteer programs.
Internships at the Perry Institute provide educational and practical support to students in interested in careers in ocean conservation and stewardship. An internship with us is a great opportunity to hone your skills, gain field experience and train under the world's leading experts in marine biology.
We create and manage coral restoration practices within organizations and businesses throughout The Bahamas and the Caribbean. Our goal is to help organizations and businesses see how coral restoration benefits the educational, recreational, economic and scientific agendas of the entire region.
