A big thanks to all our anonymous donors


How we spend your money

Whatever the size of the donation, we manage your gift responsibly to ensure the maximum benefit for sea turtles. We keep our administrative costs as low as possible by having the support of around 40 volunteers and year round assistance of one intern.

Your money is invested in 3 fundamental aspects:

Staff: STCB staff consists out of 2 full-timers and 1 part-time contractor.

Equipment: equipment is essential for our ongoing nest monitoring and in-water surveys.

Transportation: to do our job, we depend on our truck and boat to conduct fieldwork. That means that a part of your donations will go to finance our transport.

 In 2019 your money made among others the following possible:

  • Monitoring of 90 sea turtle nests on Bonaire and Klein Bonaire.
  • Continuing the Adopt-A-Nest program, with 44 adopted nests in 2019.
  • Publishing a paper in Endangered Species Research.
  • Conducting 144 transect-count and six weeks of net-capture surveys.
  • Capturing, weighing, measuring and tagging 88 green and three hawksbill turtles.
  • Sending out the bi-monthly newsletter.
  • Responding and acting on 12 reports called in of Turtles in Troubles.
  • Organizing 12 Fishing line removal clean up dives.
  • Organizing 24 presentations about Bonaire’s endangered sea turtles in English, Dutch and Papiamentu.
  • Increasing our social media presence.
