Previously, you heard the voice of the students in our J.A.M.I.N. program. Now it’s time to hear how the students in The Bahamas feel about our B.A.M. program

Though I do not want to pursue a career in science or conservation, I still appreciate and I’m thankful that I am a part of something so important like the B.A.M. program.

I learned many things during B.A.M. that I didn’t know before, and I learned to appreciate the mangroves.”

I would personally like to say thank you for giving us this opportunity to learn about the mangroves. I can’t speak for everyone, but I had a lot of fun! Please take care and stay safe.

Mangroves are in danger as there are many threats to them. I learned to be more appreciative and thankful for them. One of my favorite parts of B.A.M. was going on field trips to see and learn about the mangrove ecosystem.

We need to conserve mangroves for future generations so they can have the same experiences as we did.”
