In the Caribbean Region

Shedd scientists have been on the ground—and in the water— in the Bahamas and the Caribbean for more than 20 years to discover the secrets that can ensure the survival of the threatened animals they care deeply about.

Because habitat conservation is a key part of species survival, you’ll find Shedd researchers involved in the creation of protected areas and management plans. They also work with local people—stakeholders who depend on a healthy and diverse ecosystem for their livelihoods. They pay special attention to the school kids because it will be up to the next generation to care about and carry on stewardship of the animals, lands and waters Shedd is working to protect today.

Your support of Shedd—through a donation, membership, or ticket purchase—goes a long way through our global conservation programs.
