Education is key to the way we think about our environment. In the words of Baba Dioum, “In the end we will only conserve what we love. We will only love what we understand. We will only understand what we have been taught.” FRIENDS works with residents, visitors, children and adults to help them understand this fragile and unique place that is the Abacos.
