Coastal Awareness Clean-Up with Bimini Sands

April is Coastal Awareness Month, and as we do every year, Bimini Sands participated in another clean-up campaign on the island of Bimini. Teaming up with our friends at the SharkLab and a crew from the Bimini Tourism Office, we were able to remove several hundred pounds of trash and debris off of the beaches and roadsides of South Bimini.

Bimini Sands will be helping out with more clean-up efforts in the near future, and we have participated in dozens of them in past, and we always appreciate any help that our visitors and condo-owners can offer to keep Bimini the beautiful island paradise that it is.

Especially on an island as small as Bimini, if we all do a little, we can really do A LOT!!!

Great New Videos About Bahamian Sharks!!!

The Bahamas National Trust has teamed up with the PEW Environmental Group to launch a campaign to establish the Bahamas as a shark sanctuary. What that means is that the sharks of the Bahamas would be forever protected against the possibility of a commercial shark-fishing industry.

The sharks in the Bahamas are largely responsible for the beautiful reefs and healthy seagrass meadows, as well as the bountiful fish populations that inhabit them. Shark-based tourism also injects almost $80 million dollars into the Bahamian economy every year.

Bimini Sands took a very proactive step to become the first Shark-Free Marina, not only in the Bahamas, but in the entire world. We also have been offering our hugely popular, and educational, Shark Encounters for more than 4 years now.

To learn more about the push to protect sharks in the Bahamas, take a look at these great new videos put out by the PEW & Bahamas National Trust.
