Join STINAPA for a week filled with shark fun from Sunday June 19th – Saturday June 25th. STINAPA, along with the other Dutch Caribbean islands and Holland, is inviting the community to celebrate Shark Week. The Save Our Sharks project is an initiative of the Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance and is made possible by the ‘Nationale Postcode Loterij’. Due to intense overfishing, shark populations throughout the world are in trouble. The Save Our Sharks campaign is focused on creating awareness in the Bonairean community, working with fishermen and conducting research on sharks.
The schedule for Bonaire Shark Week 2016 is as follows:
– From 3pm to 6pm: Lionfish hunt with STINAPA and Great Adventures Bonaire
-From 6pm to 10pm: The ‘Shark Art Extravaganza’ at Wilhelmina Plein during the Taste of Bonaire. The shark art competition winners will be announced and prizes will be awarded at 7pm. There will also be games for kids, music, face painting & a whole lot more. We will be next to the Time Capsule and El Mundo restaurant.
STINAPA invites the entire Bonaire community to join us at one or all the activities during this week. All Shark Week events are open to the public and free of charge EXCEPT the Great White Shark 3D movie at Empire Cinema for the special price of $7.50.
