Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire Changes its Public Presentation Schedule and Location

Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire (STCB) is a non-governmental research and conservation organization that works to protect Bonaire’s turtles, which include the hawksbill, green and loggerhead turtles. These three turtles are included on the list of the world’s six endangered or critically endangered species of marine turtles. 

Education is a big part of the protection process and one of STCB’s goals is to inform people about turtle conservation issues, and what they can do to help. As part of this effort, STCB offers a public presentation every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month to help the public learn more about Bonaire’s turtles. Starting October 13th, the presentation will be held at a new location, which is the conference room at Captain Don’s Habitat, with a new starting time of 8:00 PM.

Discussions are focused on Bonaire’s turtles and explore such topics as what they eat, their nesting and hatching behaviors, where they are found, and why they are at risk. Also discussed are broader issues for turtles overall, including what the hazards are that cause them to be endangered, why they are worth saving, and what laws are in place to protect them.

For more information, contact STCB by phone at 717-2225 or click here. All are welcome to join in and attendance is free. (Source: Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire)
