For more than 20 years, I've been working to protect coastal birds and their habitats. I am a co-founder and director of Conservian and its Coastal Bird Conservation program. Our mission is to conserve shorebirds, seabirds, and their habitats. We began our Bahamas coastal conservation program in 2016. It is the first program of its kind in the Caribbean. My conservation crew and I look forward to welcoming you aboard as we set sail on our 2020 conservation adventure in the beautiful Bahamas. Together, we’ll embark on an important and exciting course, preserving native wildlife and restoring coastal habitats. Join us!
