The Leon Levy Plant Preserve is managed by The Bahamas National Trust (BNT). Established in 1959 by an Act of Parliament, The BNT is a science-based organization dedicated to effectively managing national parks to conserve and protect Bahamian natural resources.
A comprehensive network of effectively managed Bahamian national parks and protected areas that is recognized as a powerful force for global biodiversity conservation, and is supported and enjoyed by the public.
The BNT has been at the forefront of environmental stewardship in The Bahamas for 60+ years. Our legacy includes conservation successes such as saving the West Indian Flamingo and Bahama Parrot from the brink of extinction; the creation of the world’s first land and sea park, the Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park (ECLSP); and the preservation of some of The Bahamas’ most precious resources.
The BNT is responsible for 32 national parks covering over 2 million acres of land and sea throughout The Bahamas. This unique national park system preserves the country’s “natural jewels” – its beautiful environment, special species, and incredible biodiversity.
