The Barbados Marine Trust (BMT) was formed in May 2000 and is dedicated to promoting environmentally and socially sustainable use of the Marine areas of Barbados. This includes addressing unsustainable and polluting activities on land, which affect the marine environment.
The BMT wishes to play a major role in assisting the Government of Barbados in the implementation of marine management initiatives.
It intends to show how proper management of our marine resources can result in a healthy and productive marine environment thereby providing a legacy for future generations. Protecting our reefs ensures that our economy, community, and the livelihoods of our people are sustained. The Trust intends to implement a long-term plan, which will enable us to educate the population, in particular our children on the importance of, and need for a permanent policy for the future of our marine resources.
