scaled.erika-gates-donation_1.jpg
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - Mackey Media Ltd's Still Standing After The Storm Hurricane Relief Concert  and Food Drive at Port Lucaya on Friday Nov 25, 2016 drew a large cross section of community support by local residents seeking to assist the Salvation Army and Red Cross feeding programs while enjoying a vibrant showcase of local talent.

Florida Manatee Decides It's Better in The Bahamas - Dec 2, 2016 - 4:15:42 PM

Bahamian Research Group Confirms “Washburn” the Wandering Manatee’s Safe Arrival


A Florida manatee known as “Washburn” has made history by being the first manatee that researchers have actively tracked as it crossed the Gulf Stream and arrived in the Bahamas. Last week, scientists from the Bahamas Marine Mammal Research Organisation (BMMRO) confirmed the pregnant manatee is now swimming in the waters of the northern Abacos near Grand Cay.

Crossing the 4-mph Gulf Stream and finding the banks of the Bahamas is no easy feat for slow-swimming manatees typically found in shallow water so researchers monitoring her track during her near 200-mile trek were somewhat concerned.

#WeMarch - A Revolution? - Dec 2, 2016 - 11:57:45 AM

On November 25, 2016, thousands of Bahamians participated in #WeMarch in Nassau, Bahamas. It is important to note that marches reportedly also took place in Grand Bahama, Abaco, Eleuthera, and Mayaguana. Weeks ago, Ranard Henfield — known for his work on Our Carmichael — announced a twelve hour protest march from Arawak Cay to Rawson Square, calling on the government to respond to 18 issues. They included VAT, Marco’s Law, public disclosure, and whistle blower protection. Any Bahamian paying moderate attention to current events in the country could stand behind a placard addressing at least one of the listed issues, and many brought new items such as life-saving resources on Family Islands, support for Junkanoo, and protection of marine resources. This contributed to both the large number of participants and general inability to clearly articulate the purpose of the march as related to direct outcomes. The march was an exciting endeavor that gave people a way to participate — a relatively quick start to a lengthy process...
