Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bahamas National Trust was created by an Act of Parliament in 1959, through the efforts of two groups of conservationists.In the early 20th century there was concern for the survival of the Caribbean Flamingo. The National Audubon Society of the United States urged the Bahamas government to protect the flamingos, which led to passage of the Wildbirds (Protection) Act in 1905.In the early 1950s, Audubon expert Robert Porter Allen scoured the Caribbean searching for flamingos. In his popular book, On the Trail of Vanishing Birds, Allen found that the colonies on the island of Andros in the Bahamas had already disappeared.show more
