The Bahamas National Trust, the National Audubon Society and the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism have developed a joint bird-based tourism initiative to help Bahamians take advantage of a growing, multi-billion-dollar global market.
Prime Minister Perry Christie will be the keynote speaker at the official launch of the bird tourism initiative to an environmental and travel industry audience at the British Colonial Hilton January 26.
Other speakers will include Tourism Minister Obie Wilchcombe; Deputy director of Audubon’s International Alliances Programme, Matt Jeffrey; BNT president Larry Glinton; and a tour guide spokesperson.
Funded by the Inter-American Development Bank, the bird-based Tourism Initiative has been implemented by the BNT and the Audubon Society, with the Ministry of Tourism playing a key strategic role.
