Hurricane Dorian was the most devastating storm in the modern history of the Bahamas. Based on prior research, as well as assessments of the coral reefs in the affected islands, the Perry Institute for Marine Science is now able to provide a complete report on just how significant the storm was on the state of those reefs.

In the attached report, those findings are shared, as well as recommendations for the recovery of the affected marine systems. While the impact of the storm will be felt on the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama for many years to come, there is hope for recovery.
