The BMA joins the North American Marine Environment Protection Association

Posted on: 26th February 2020

The Bahamas Maritime Authority is delighted to announce that it has just become a member of the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA).

NAMEPA is  an organisation of marine industry members, all sharing a fundamental belief that the marine environment should be preserved by promoting sustainable marine industry best practices and educating seafarers, students and the public about the need  to protect global ocean, lake and river resources.

Through a series of events run at regular intervals throughout the year and educational resources, developed with the school curriculum in mind, NAMEPA aims to educate the next generation so that they reach adulthood inspired to become better stewards of their oceans.

Sustainability is a key issue for The BMA and it is keen to support any organisation working to protect the marine environment. As a member of the organisation, The BMA will collaborate with leaders in industry, government, regulatory and environmental groups that share its sustainability goals, all working together to implement strategies to help ‘save our seas’.
