Help Youth Learn To Protect The Environment

In ten days the Bahamas National Trust will be holding its second annual environmental youth camp for teens in Andros.  They still need help, particularly in securing the food and supply items on the pledge form.  Significant commitments have been received thus far from Kerzner, Lyford Cay Club, Lindroth Development Company and Bahamas Ferries for which BHA and BNT are grateful.  It's the small stuff they are needing now.  Please, take a look at the pledge form which lists specific needs and if you are in the position to assist, please do so.  Twenty-five teens will benefit from the camp this year which aims to broaden awareness and appreciation for protecting our industry's greatest resource – our environment.
