Sustainability Fisheries, and Center for Sustainable Development (CSD) gathered under one booth in honor of #Earthday in Governor’s Habrour, Eleuthera.

Children came flocking over to do some ‘science’ with our very own Mike Cortina by making biodiesel from CSD. High schoolers seem mainly interested in the Aquaponics system and how it works from Michael Bowleg, another portion of CSD.

Last but not least, Sustainable Fisheries drew in the crowd with the live lionfish display, diagrams, and simple to follow fillet guide.

Other organizations that were there were One Eleuthera, BREEF, and Preston Aurbry High School representing Bahamas Plastic Movement just to name a few. They had a large interactive banner that people would place their hand print on and write one disposal plastic they will not use anymore (or at least try to if had the option).

The outreach was a huge success thanks to the community coming and working together. Many signed up for the CEI Newsletter, while others became intrigued on our YOU SLAY, WE PAY campaign.

Until next time!
