More than a tangle of roots growing out of swampy muck, the Mangroves are nurseries for the marine life of the Bahamas. More than 90% of the species of the Bahamas spend some part of their lives here. This is where baby sharks learn to hunt and young lobsters learn how to hide.
Hidden away beneath the surface of the Bahamian archipelago is a magical world millions of years in the making. The Caves and Blue Holes of the Bahamas house some of the most spectacularly beautiful geological formations in the world.
An amazing underwater metropolis; the biodiversity of the reef is critical to species living in the Bahamas. Diverse and colorful marine creatures seek food and shelter among the complex coral structures in this interdependent environment.
Beyond the iconic and pristine white beaches of the Bahamas, the Sand Flats are home to fierce Iguanas, camouflaging stingrays, and the beautiful bottlenose dolphin.
Open Water makes up nearly half of the area of the Bahamas but houses its most elusive species. These creatures must be able to swim far or fast, to search for food, mates, and shelter.
The Bahamas, to the mangroves that protect its sand flats from tropical storms, each eco-region, and many species of the Bahamas, depends on each other to survive. Together these interconnected ecosystems and species embody the magic of the Bahamas.
