|The First Bahaman Private Island to be Protected from Developmen|
|07 July 2018 |
A no building clause has been placed on the island in order to ensure the preservation of its native bird colony
The decision could set a precedent throughout the Bahamas as the Government wakes up to the importance of (private) island preservation.
Private Island News has this week uncovered that a private island in the Bahamas has become the first in the region to be subject to strict conservation laws which will prevent the development of the island and ensure its preservation and for years to come.
Finley Cay, located just one hour to the east of Nassau and close to North Eleuthera, has been singled out for special treatment after a colony of rare birds was discovered on the island. A no building cause was subsequently placed on the island in the hope of protecting the birds and their incredible natural habitat.
Environmental groups are already hoping that the decision to protect the island with strict conservation laws will set a precedent throughout the region and raise awareness of the importance of private island conservation.
Located more than seven miles from its nearest neighbour, the 13 acre island provides the utmost in privacy as well easy access to the amenities of Nassau. Currently undeveloped, the island is now subject to a strict no-build law – the only exception of which is the construction of a building aimed to protect and preserve the island’s avian community.
