Anchor Projects Hurting Us All!
Our Director and #1 Recording artist in The Bahamas, KB, has released another song about one of our major concerns ANCHOR PROJECTS! We need to make smart decisions about large projects in our islands and respect the locals opinions on how or if they will work in their communities. As we work to Save The Bays, we are asking our government to make sensible decisions about new projects, ones that our non-damaging to our environment and eco-friendly for our future. Please watch, listen and share as we all work to Save The Bays in our beautiful Bahamas.
Help SAVE Little Harbour, Abaco, Bahamas
Help us SAVE the beautiful Little Harbour, in Abaco. Join the Responsible Development for Abaco (RDA) team and #savethebays as we demand that the Government respects the LOCALS! On May 23rd, 2016 the RDA, was granted leave “to issue a motion seeking Judicial Review” of the Abaco Club’s proposed development of this bay. RDA initiated the proceedings on the grounds that both developer (the Abaco Club) and the Government have failed to engage in “adequate consultation” with residents and affected parties in Little Harbour. ISSUES: Apart from the 44-slip private dock, the Abaco Club’s planned supporting facilities include a supplies shop, private restaurant and 6,000 square foot covered parking lot. RDA fears that if the project goes ahead it will completely change the environment and character of Little Harbour, a 50-home community that runs almost entirely off solar power. QC Fred Smith said "the action was based on what he described as the Government’s consistent failure to properly consult local residents, and others, who will be most affected by development and infrastructure projects approved from afar in Nassau."

Save The Bays Urges the Government to Establish the North Bimini Marine Reserve
We hosted a group of international environmentalists to a tour of The Bahamas, especially areas that are of concern to Save The Bays.

International Environmentalists Investigate Bimini
During a recent trip hosted by Save The Bays, international environmentalists visited Bimini to explore the damage caused by the recent dredging by the Machiavell, the large dredger hired by Resorts World.

Please watch and share this video to raise awareness of what is happening in Bimini and the consequences of unregulated, unmitigated development.
