Fighting against unregulated development, oil pollution and environmental degradation in The Bahamas.
Fighting for transparency, accountability and environmental protection legislation.
Save the Bays (STB) is a registered non-profit that fights unregulated development and environmental degradation in The Bahamas with its community partners and other NGOs by raising awareness in the media and taking legal action. We also engage the local community on these issues through outreach and advocacy.
To date, STB has vocally challenged more than a dozen unsustainable development projects, and STB or its community partners have championed six of these to court over various irregularities and in two cases the court ordered illegal operations to shut down completely.
We promote the Rule of Law, environmental protection legislation, conservation awareness and government transparency.
STB is a member of the Waterkeeper® Alliance, and close collaborator with Waterkeepers® Bahamas which exists to monitor and protect the Bahamian waters and marine ecosystems.
Who are we?
Save The Bays is a diverse group of locals and international allies who care deeply about preserving the pristine environment of The Bahamas, and work closely with community partners to preserve and protect these beautiful islands, waters, and ecosystems.
