The Bahamas National Park System is at the heart of the Trust's mandate. Within our parks are many unique features, critical habitats and endangered species. Bahamian Parks are treasure-troves of biodiversity as well as areas of pure aesthetic beauty. The system protects the world's largest breeding colony of West Indian Flamingos, one of the world's longest underwater cave systems, a critically important sea turtle research facility and one of the most successful marine fishery reserves in the Wider Caribbean.
Abaco National Park
Established on May 9, 1994, the Abaco National Park comprises 20,500 Acres in Southern Abaco. Included in this area is 5,000 Acres of pine forest, the major habitat of the Bahama Parrot.
The Abaco National Park also holds great potential for ecotourism. The Park is easily accessible and the supporting tourism infrastructure in Abaco (hotels, etc.) lends itself to the development of nature tourism activities. Abaco has the best birding of any island in The Bahamas. It is possible to see more Bahamian specialties on Abaco then on any other island. A visiting birder with a good guide can see Bahama Parrots, West Indian Woodpeckers, Bahama Swallows, Bahama Yellow throats, Loggerhead Kingbirds, Olive-capped Warblers and Bahama Mockingbird.
Bahamians who are willing to learn about birds and the other flora and fauna of the Park, as well as take a tour guide training, have a great economic opportunity awaiting them in Abaco.
