In 2011, AGRRA scientists Judith Lang and Ken Marks collaborated with The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation (KSLOF) to conduct coral reefs surveys in the Bahamas including the Inaguas, Hogsty Reef and Cay Sal Bank. Reports from those surveys are now available along with the interactive atlas of Bahamian coral reefs (see news release below).
NEWS RELEASE from Living Oceans Foundation
Date: March 1, 2017
Subject: A new way to see The Bahamas Underwater – KSLOF launches interactive atlas of Bahamian coral reefs
The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation (KSLOF) has launched an interactive version of our Bahamas Atlas. It is a great resource for anyone wanting to know more about the coral reefs, mangrove forests, and seagrass beds of The Bahamas, but will be particularly useful for organizations and decision makers looking to safeguard these vital natural resources.
The Atlas is a digital flip book that contains detailed reports of the shallow water marine habitats of Cay Sal Bank, Great Inagua, Little Inagua, and Hogsty Reef along with direct links to fine-scale maps of seafloor habitats in these regions. In the accompanying Bahamas Web Map, viewers can overlay these habitat maps with maps of diversity, connectivity, and threats to coral reefs from heat and hurricanes.
