From December 3 – 19, some of the world’s top explorers and scientists in their fields were on-island to map out and research Abaco’s mysterious and beautiful blue holes. A large part of their visit has also been spent conducting educational outreach to students of Abaco.
Following a visit to the Abaco Chamber of Commerce in March regarding the Small and Medium Size Enterprises Development Bill (SMEDA), Tonya Cargill- Adderley, principal of Contact Excellence Consulting, returned to Abaco on Nov.1. Cargill-Adderley was accompanied by Maria Lucia Prinz, a National Geographic representative, for a presentation at the Office of the Prime Minister in the Government Complex. This time the focus was on The Bahamas Geotourism Out Islands Program for National Geographic’s Interactive MapGuide.
