Beneath The Waves
Founded in 2013 as a non-profit organization, Beneath The Waves is dedicated to promoting ocean health and using science and technology to catalyze ocean policy. We specifically focus on threatened species conservation and marine protected areas, with a deep affinity for sharks.
Our research creates the conservation evidence needed to inform broad-scale and region-specific ocean policies, while also providing solutions to new or emerging conservation challenges.
BREEF is an important part of the conservation and education on marine ecosystems in The Bahamas and the world. From providing on-the-ground instruction for Bahamians to be stewards of the environment and advocating for strong policy, to actively restoring reef habitat and representing the region internationally, BREEF has a successful multi-pronged approach to protecting the marine environment.
To fulfill its vision, BREEF focuses on grass-roots programmes in education, outreach, research and policy, which together impact all Bahamian stakeholders, as well as visitors.
