Bahamas marina receives environmental award

Posted on

The Foundation for Environmental Education, an international non-profit and non-governmental organization, awarded a Blue Flag to Bimini Sands Marina on South Bimini in the Bahamas.

The Blue Flag is a voluntary “eco-label” that is awarded to marinas around the world based on their compliance with 24 criteria covering environmental education and information, water quality, environmental management and safety and services.

Bimini Sands Marina received its Blue Flag certification on Sept. 12 after a rigorous application and inspection process. To date, it is one of only four marinas in the Bahamas that have achieved this environmental standard.

“Keeping our resort and marina, our island and the incredible blue water surrounding it pristine and environmentally sustainable is a top priority for us here at Bimini Sands,” Bimini Sands Resort and Marina president and CEO Frank Cooney said in a statement. “We are proud of all the hard work that our marina staff and Bimini Sands activities co-directors Katie Grudecki and Grant Johnson have put into earning this prestigious award.”

The Blue Flag has been awarded to more than 3,850 beaches and marinas in 48 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco, Tunisia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada and the Caribbean.
