We are pleased to announce the companion website to Treasures in the Sea: Our Bahamian Marine Resources, a new resource book that provides educators with scientific information and engaging, hands-on activities that encourage students to discover, cherish, and protect the sea and all of its treasures.
Visit the website to download the book or sections of the book, link to resources related to the activities, find out about training workshops in The Bahamas, and share teaching ideas and experiences in marine conservation education.
We hope you will find Treasures in the Sea useful and welcome any feedback you may have!

Treasures in the Sea grew out of the Bahamas Biocomplexity Project, an interdisciplinary study to improve understanding of the potential for marine protected area networks to support biodiversity conservation and fisheries sustainability, as well as recreational and other uses. It was developed through a partnership of the American Museum of Natural History’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, the Bahamas National Trust, and the Bahamas Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture, with support from numerous collaborators.
