Kralendijk – The Dutch Minister of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, Carola Schouten, has officially opened the new Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance office during her working visit to Bonaire, together with Island Governor Edison Rijna.

DCNA made use of the opportunity to request urgent attention for the conservation of ’the Kingdom’s unique backyard’. The six Dutch Caribbean islands are known for their beautiful and diverse nature, and it’s conservation has not been sufficiently addressed.

The current support from the Netherlands is mainly aimed at the BES islands, but nature knows no borders, according to the DCNA. That is why it is of the utmost importance that the Kingdom supports all six Dutch Caribbean Islands and includes all six islands in nature conservation plans and projects.
