  • Bonaire’s Coral Restoration Foundation gives a free slide presentation every Monday evening at 6:30 PM at the pool bar of Buddy Dive Resort.

Tuesdays

  • Every Tuesday morning STCB (Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire) goes to Sorobon to clean and repair the seagrass lines. Sorobon is the side of Lac Bai where the windsurfers surf. This is a prime windsurfing spot because Lac is very shallow and there is consistent wind. Unfortunately, this area also has seagrass beds that are vital to the marine ecosystem and that filter the water in Lac. Without these seagrasses, Lac will not be clean and clear, so to protect them from watersports activities, STCB has created floating barriers. Every week the lines need to be cleaned and repaired to continue to protect the seagrass beds and keep Lac Bai beautiful! To sign up for volunteering, please contact Dr. Sue Willis.

Wednesdays

  •  Echo Parrot Foundation offers tours of the area surrounding Dos Pos each Wednesday at 4:30 PM.  Meet at the Dos Pos windmill and bring good hiking shoes.  Learn about this foundation’s efforts to protect the endangered lora, Bonaire’s parrot.
