The Kenyon Centre is an 8 bedroom facility located in Marsh Harbour next to FRIENDS’ existing offices. The Kenyon Centre aims to facilitate research on Abaco by providing lower cost housing, storage, basic lab facilities and logistical assistance. Abaco is a natural center for research, with eight established National Parks and protected areas, along with three more under consideration, which provide for excellent sites for long term studies. With a variety of conservation and education programs, FRIENDS is also able to offer visiting researchers assistance with fulfilling local education and outreach portions of funding requirements.
The Kenyon Centre is also available for hosting high school and university programs, conducting field courses and opportunities to partner with scientists on long term research projects.
