The objective of the “St. Maarten Birding” project is to enhance the benefits to the community of birding recreation and tourism on Sint Maarten. This will be achieved through recruiting and training local bird-guides, building basic birding infrastructure and conducting an education and awareness campaign. The project will be implemented in close collaboration with the government department of VROMI and other stakeholders.
The Nature Foundation was established in 1997 as an Island Government initiative to preserve and enhance the natural environment of St. Maarten; through proper management, education, public awareness, law enforcement, scientific research and monitoring related to all aspects of the terrestrial, wetlands and marine surroundings.
