Public Presentation: The Ecological Restoration of Lac and the Southern Coast of Bonaire
August 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm AST
STINAPA will present a free, public lecture on its recent efforts at restoring the ecology of Lac Bay and the southern coast of Bonaire.
Lac Bay is a non-estuarine lagoon, with a fringing reef, and it is an open central bay where we can find seagrass beds and many sea critters. The bay is surrounded by a mangrove forest.
Nature around the world is deteriorating, and Lac Bay is not an exception. This project aims at mitigating some of the effects causing damage to the ecosystems in Lac. Sabine Engel, a marine biologist, is responsible for the management and execution of the project, and she will outline the project and report on the progress.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
