Bahamas Conch in the News

We’ve shared posts about conch populations before but a new study led by Dr. Kough from Shedd Aquarium found that the conch population declined 71% in 2016 compared to a 2011 survey in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. View the full study here and a popular news article here.

‘What will happen to the Bahamas when all the Conch is gone?’

“Let’s think about tomorrow, there are some simple rules to follow: preservation, moderation, we need some Conchservation. Conch Gone!”

Under the direction of Lavado Stubbs, ConchBoy films, with several musicians, a new music video came out today to help the conservation of conch for The Bahamas (article here). A widespread effort between entertainers and several conservation and management organizations throughout The Bahamas to give us a glimpse of our future if ‘we do not come together to conserve our precious resource’.  If you need a quick pick me up on this Friday with a great message and tune to go along with it, click HERE!
