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 2018 your money made among others the following possible:

  • Monitoring of 105 sea turtle nests on Bonaire and Klein Bonaire and safeguarding of 10,328 hatchlings.
  • Deploying a satellite transmitter on a green turtle named ‘Bonni’.
  • Continuing the Adopt-A-Nest program, with 56 adopted nests in 2018.
  • Partnering with Wild Conscience to protect the beaches and mangroves of Bonaire.
  • Sending out the bi-monthly newsletter.
  • Conducting 144 in-water turtle foraging ground surveys.
  • Responding and acting on 10 reports called in of Turtles in Troubles.
  • Organizing 5 Fishing line removal clean up dives.
  • Addressing policy and legislation threats to the marine park through the “Save Bonaire Marine Park” initiative.
  • Partnering with Boneiru Duradero to study the feasibility to ban plastic bags on Bonaire in the future.
  • Organizing 24 presentations about Bonaire’s endangered sea turtles in English, Dutch and Papiamentu.
  • Increasing our social media presence.
  • Buying fieldwork equipment, regulator and (pit) tags.
