DCNA strategizes on nature conservation

BONAIRE: The Board of the Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA) recently held its first board meeting for 2021 in a mixed virtual and in-person setting.

Several decisions were made and strategies crucial to the ensuring of the continuation of the conservation management activities executed by the Park Management Organizations of all six islands of the Dutch Caribbean were discussed.

Originally an in-person meeting was planned for St. Maarten, but due to a spike in COVID19 cases on the ABC islands it was decided to host a mixed meeting, with some members joining from Sint Maarten while others joined from their respective home locations throughout the Dutch Caribbean and the Netherlands.

The DCNA conservation network, provides support to the Protected Area Management Organizations on all six islands of the Dutch Caribbean: Aruba National Parks Foundation, STINAPA Bonaire, CARMABI Curaçao, STENAPA St. Eustatius, the Saba Conservation Foundation and the Sint Maarten Nature Foundation. Another critical component discussed during the Board Meeting is the importance of implementing a strategy which will help foster the development of sustainable tourism for the islands, enabling the Dutch Caribbean to emerge from the challenges brought about by the Pandemic with a greater focus on green and blue economies.
