Supporting environmental conservation and education programs and policy to protect the fragile marine environment of The Bahamas.

The Moore Charitable Foundation and its Bahamas Affiliate, The Moore Bahamas Foundation, support environmental conservation and education programs to protect the fragile marine environment of The Bahamas. The Foundation focuses on safeguarding marine areas from illegal fishing and development, advancing sustainable conch fisheries, protecting the Nassau grouper, and preserving the Clifton Bay area. Specific areas of interest are as follows.

Marine research, Protection and Education

The Foundation partners with organizations that advance local marine conservation efforts around The Bahamas, and education initiatives that provide hands-on opportunities to learn about the Bahamian marine environment.

Preserving the land of Clifton Bay

Focused on protecting Clifton Bay and surrounding marine environments through proactive policy change, legal action, advocacy and education, The Foundation is focused on initiatives that encourage effective land use and habitat restoration efforts to benefit the land, coast, water and local communities.

Sustainable Fisheries

The Moore Bahamas Foundation supports initiatives that protect key species in Bahamian waters, including the Queen conch and the Nassau grouper; return these stocks to sustainable levels in Bahamian waters; and assist fishery managers with best practice management of sustainable fisheries.

Shark Sanctuaries

Partners in The Bahamas include: Bahamas National Trust, Research Foundation for State University of New York Stony Brook, The Nature Conservancy Bahamas, Sea Turtle Conservancy, and The Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation.

“The Navigator clubs are part of a 3 year certification programme for young people between the ages of 13 and 25. The programme fosters an educational setting where an appreciation for the natural environment, leadership, curiosity, entrepreneurship, responsibility and teamwork are incorporated into the studies, activities and field trips within the curriculum. The clubs also provide internationally recognized certifications such as SCUBA open water diving and AGRRA coral reef assessment.”
