We the people of the Bahamas and other countries are calling on the Government of the Bahamas to protect Eleuthera’s Lighthouse Point, Bannerman Town and surrounding areas.
This pristine place of outstanding beauty is currently not protected and is being marketed as a potential site for gated development. This much-loved part of the island is in current danger of being ruined forever if it is not PROTECTED NOW.
Lighthouse Point is one of the most popular beach and recreation areas in the entire Bahamas.
The diversity of the Eco system and the hugely important cultural and historic resources are irreplaceable and should be preserved for the enjoyment and education of the entire community and not just for a select few.
Archaeological and scientific findings to this point have been significant. It is reported to be one of the most important unexplored archaeological and scientific sites in the Bahamas.
The Government of Bahamas has signed onto the Caribbean Challenge and has agreed to place certain percentages of land and sea into protected custody. At this point, there are still no designated conservation areas on Eleuthera.
Please sign this very important petition and help us make Lighthouse Point the first protected place on Eleuthera.
