Research & Monitoring

Bonaire is home to a wide range of ecosystems and numerous plants and animals with a special conservation interest.

Lively coral reefs, waving beds of seagrass, crystal clear bays, mangrove forests, colorful saliñas and tropical dry forests make this island treasured by its local people and nature lovers around the world.

In addition, this tiny Caribbean island features four internationally recognized wetland areas that are under the protection of the Ramsar convention. STINAPA Bonaire is mandated by the Island Government of Bonaire to manage the two national parks of Bonaire.

Successful management of nature areas is dependent on good legislation and governance, monitoring of resources, and sustainable development.
