The assessment was part of the BNT’s effort to develop management plans for Abaco's marine parks. Established in 2002, Walker’s Cay is one of six marine parks around Abaco. The others are: the Marls National Park, East Abaco Creeks National Park, Cross Harbour National Park, South Abaco Blue Holes National Park, and Fowl Cays National Park.
Recent reports suggest that the Government is hoping to close on a sale of Walker’s Cay to a US real estate billionaire and return it to its “boater’s paradise heyday” soon.
It was recently reported in a national newspaper that the Government believes the sale of Walker’s Cay could be sealed by June, placing The Bahamas “back in play” as a top investment destination.
