Weathering the Storm | Recovery and rebuilding in The Bahamas

In 2019, Hurricane Dorian left 70,000 Bahamians homeless and caused $3.4 billion in damage. In the aftermath, The Bahamas came together to revitalize communities and ecosystems devastated by the storm. Natural resources like mangroves and coral reefs are the first line of defense against weather events, acting as buffers that mitigate the severity of floods and storm surges. But climate change is weakening these vital habitats and increasing the intensity and frequency of catastrophic storms. Still reeling from the destruction, Bahamians remain united and resilient, working to restore the terrestrial and marine environment and prepare for future disasters.
