Pine Trees in The Abaco National Park

Established in 1994, this National Park, comprising 20,500 acres of pine forest in Southern Abaco, has been designated a preservation area by the Bahamas Government and is managed by The Bahamas National Trust. Included are 5,000 acres of pine forest, the nesting area and habitat of about 1000 endangered Bahama Parrots (aka Abaco Parrots). The forest is valuable to the parrots for several reasons: during the breeding season, parrots feed on the seeds from the pine trees, which provide a rich source of protein for developing chicks, and they nest in limestone cavities on the ground of the pine forest.
