In 2019, Hurricane Dorian destroyed 69 square miles of mangrove forests in the Bahamas, affecting the entire ecosystem of the islands. To combat this large-scale devastation, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT) and MANG are working with Bahamas partners to plant 100,000 mangroves and help kick start natural mangrove regrowth on Grand Bahama Island and The Abacos.
The BTT Bahamas Collection features the iconic bonefish to honor the world-renowned flats fishing industries affected by Hurricane Dorian. Every purchase from this collection directly supports the replanting of mangroves in the Bahamas, as well as entitles you to an introductory one-year membership to Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, whose mission is to conserve bonefish, tarpon and permit—the species, their habitats and the larger fisheries they comprise.
- 10% of all proceeds from the BTT Bahamas collection go directly to combined planting and educational efforts in the Bahamas
- Every purchase plants a mangrove through MANG’s Buy One. Plant One.® initiative
- Your support brings visible awareness to the collected efforts of MANG and BTT to help the Bahamas restore and protect their island for future generations
