For the Parks, For the Country, For the Future

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.

Our Vision...

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.

Our Legacy

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.
