Grand Bahama is the fourth largest island in The Bahamas, with vast stretching beaches, extensive cave systems, and precious wetlands. The main city of Freeport is a highly valued tourist destination and home to the second largest oil bunkering facility in the western hemisphere. Oil spills, dredging, and now mining for aragonite threaten the marine environment around Grand Bahama.

Joseph is a native of Long Island, Bahamas and has a passion for the environment of his beloved ‘Bahamaland’ that is unmatched. He is also President of Waterkeepers Bahamas and a director at Save the Bays. Joseph formerly taught at St. Augustine’s College and at Queen’s College, both in Nassau. He was also previously the Director of Workforce Development at the Grand Bahama Shipyard.
