  MEMBER PROFILE  

Andros Conservancy and Trust (ANCAT)

ANCAT was initially formed in 1997 by a group of concerned local government representatives, bone fishing guides, and resort owners who felt the need for greater local and national commitment to preserve Andros’ vulnerable natural resources.   Our ten member Board of Directors is comprised of a cross-section of local community members.

Over the years our major accomplishments have included helping achieve protection status for grouper spawning aggregations, assisting in establishing the 1,401,048 acre Andros National Park System, and in obtaining and implementing conservation projects in the Central Andros region. Our strength lies in working at both the grass-roots level to involve local communities in conservation efforts, and in partnering with a variety of national and international partners.

In upcoming years, our strategy is to grow on our experience base by working with our partners to further involve our communities in addressing priority environmental and natural resource management issues in Central Andros, through education, conservation and management initiatives. Our efforts reflect ANCAT’s belief that long-term conservation can only be achieved through full-fledged local stewardship of our island’s resources.
