Education & Conservation
The Bahamas is a nation of islands with 95% of our territory underwater. Our economy, livelihoods, and culture are inextricably linked to the health of our oceans. BREEF is dedicated to educating Bahamians and visitors about protecting our coral reefs that protect us. We proudly reach over 3,500 students a year through our education programmes.
We have so many opportunities for you to connect with nature. Whether you want to experience a nature walk, shallow-water snorkel or a field study, we’ll work with you to customize a fun and engaging learning experience.
Help us restore our coral reefs! We can train you on how to become a PADI Reef Rescue Diver.
BREEF works to protect our ocean for future generations including 20% our ocean in marine protected areas.
