Shark Free Marinas, Bahamas

We are proud to announce the Bimini Sands Resorts participation in the Bahamas Shark Free Marinas Initiative. In the world of shark conservation there are "willing participants" and then there are those rare few who become invested in the success of a conservation endeavor.

Bimini Sands Resort is one of these. Taking the initial proposed sign design and adding some great modifications to it they have produced what we feel is the strongest message a marina can make in the Bahamas region against the killing for sport of sharks. With the spectacular death of a pregnant Tiger last year the timing could not be sooner.

Kudo's to them for this effort. A quick look at their blog tells the whole story this week.

Thanks to Duncan Brake who works at the Bimini Biological Field Station and who re-worked the graphic for the signs.

Shark conservation efforts always start with an "idea" but it take an organic effort to make the necessary changes in any region. Leading the charge in this region is Bimini Sands Resort.
