Whether it's $5, $100, or $5,000, whatever you give makes an important difference. 100 % of funds received online will go directly to the protection of Bonaire's endangered sea turtles (only the Paypal fee will be deducted).

Your donation will help fund the following programs: nest monitoring, in-water surveys, seagrass protection, cleanup events, turtle rescues, education and awareness programs, training, advocacy and satellite tracking.

Please be advised that donations to STCB are processed via PayPal by Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA) of which STCB is a member.

As of January 1st 2015, the Dutch Tax Service (Belastingdienst) has granted to Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire ANBI status. The Dutch abbreviation ANBI means Algemeen Nut Beogende Instellingen (Institution Aimed at the Common Good) refers to charitable, religious, humanistic, cultural and scientific institutions whose mission and operations are deemed by the Tax Service overwhelmingly to serve the Common Good.

The Dutch government implements a fiscal policy that encourages the donation of funds to causes that advance the Common Good. Apart from granting tax advantages to Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire, ANBI status also favors STCB's Sponsors, Contributors and Patrons in countries that grant tax concessions to foreign registered charities, as well as those based in the Netherlands. Sponsors, Contributors and Patrons who have made a donation to STCB may be able to deduct the amount from taxable income.
