General

  • Mission:
  • The Andros Conservancy and Trust's mission is to protect, preserve, enhance and restore the natural resources of Andros Island and its marine environment, through education, conservation and management for future generations.

  • Overview:
  • The Andros Conservancy and Trust (Ancat) is a non government, non profit organization, founded in 1999 to protect, preserve, enhance and restore Andros Island's natural resources and marine environment for the benefit of future generations. Ancat was initially formed in 1997 by a group of concerned local government representatives, bonefishing guides and resrt owners who felt the need for greater local and national commitment to preserve Andros' vulnerable natural resources. The eleven member Board is comprised of a cross section of local community members.

  • History:
  • Over the years the major accomplishments have included helping achieve protection status for grouper spawning aggregations, assisting in establishing the 1,401,053 acre Andros National Park System and in obtaining and implementing conservation projects in the Central Andros communities. Our strength lies in working at both the grass roots level to involve local communities in conservation efforts and in partnering with a variety of national and international partners.
