Bahamas National Trust
The Bahamas National Trust was established in 1959 by an Act of Parliament as a statutory organization and mandated with the responsibility and authority to build and manage the Bahamas National Park System. Its Mission is to conserve and protect the natural resources of The Bahamas.
Discovery Club was started in 1995 as a merit based educational program of the BNT where students earn merit badges for their learning and achievements. Presently, there are 74 individual school clubs that have 1,500 students 7-18 years old enrolled in the clubs on 10 Bahamian Islands. This is an excellent program that through hands-on education has brought about a major positive change in attitude and perception of a generation of Bahamian Youth.
