Kralendijk, The Bottom, Saba, Oranjestad, St. Eustatius – Tadzio Bervoets represented the DCNA by presenting “Nature Conservation in the Dutch Caribbean” at the IUCN – NL night in Marseille. He highlighted all of the protected area management organizations in the Dutch Caribbean, which are Aruba National Park Foundation, Carmabi Curacao, Stinapa Bonaire, Saba Conservation Foundation, Stenapa St. Eustatius, and Nature Foundation St. Maarten.
In his presentation, he drew attention to the biodiversity importance of each island and all of the threats that impact these vital ecosystems.
