In 1958, the future of conservation in The Bahamas and the wider Caribbean would change forever. The establishment of The Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park made it the first of it's kind in the world and to this day, this park stands as a prime example of what a Marine Reserve should look like. Some of the Bahamas' most beautiful sites lie within this park's 176 square mile boundary, and rivaling to the #gardensofthequeen this marine reserve may just be the healthiest and most flourishing marine ecosystem definitely in The Bahamas, and maybe the surronding Caribbean. However this park is nowhere near its full potential as, there are many amazing things that are about to happen here, and it has it's challenges, Resources being the biggest one, and Poachers being second. Until you visit the ECLSP, the first Bahamian National Park and the foundation of what conservation was built off in The Bahamas, you haven't seen The Bahamas.
