The Nature Foundation, in a continued effort to educate the youth on conservation issues and stress the important role they play in the future of nature conservation on this island, established the Snorkel Club program with the aim of introducing youngsters to the ocean through the teaching of snorkeling skills and marine conservation.
Despite being only 16 square miles (42 square km) in land area, St. Maarten has stunning natural profiles that continue to inspire breath-taking moments of visual perception.
Nature Foundation has spearheaded a number of projects over the years and is also presently active in various activities that help to promote environmental awareness in the community and conserve our fragile marine life.
We were fortunate enough to spend some time with the St Maarten Nature Foundation last week. The whole crew is dedicated to our oceans and the health of the planet, they provide outreach classes, reef protection, science-driven innovations in regenerating corals and post-Irma ever continuing clean up. If you happen to be lucky enough to visit their beautiful island go see them, volunteer some of your time and give up whatever amount of monies you can, any and all of this will go towards a great crew working to keep our oceans alive and strong.
I’ve seen in the past videos of the work that the foundation has done to help protect the environment. Thanks to all who works to protect our island, especially after hurricane Irma. Thank you.
