Clifton Bay faces Massive Threat’ says Environmental Expert as Concerned Individuals form Coalition to Protect Clifton Bay

Nassau, Bahamas — Leading environmental expert, Kathleen Sullivan-Sealey (Associate Professor at the Department of Biology. University of Miami), says: “Clifton Bay is under massive threat. Coral reef is being destroyed, oil spills are increasing and the conch population risks dying out.

The root of all this damage is the lack of proper oversight and regulation of fishing, tourism, transport, coastal development and other human activities.  The conservation and protection of Clifton Bay is being sacrificed for short-term interests.”

To address these critical threats, Kathleen and other leading names in the field of environmentalism and conservation throughout The Bahamas and the United States have joined together to form the “Coalition to Protect Clifton Bay” which launches today. The Coalition to Protect Clifton Bay (CPCB) is a group of highly-respected individuals drawn from a range of backgrounds, united by a shared desire to protect Clifton Bay and other marine environments surrounding New Providence Island and The Bahamas.
