This conference will take place on the island of Bonaire. The marine environments and reefs on Bonaire have been protected as an internationally recognized marine park (BNMP) since 1979. The island is known as one of the Caribbean’s top eco and diving destinations. This will serve as an appropriate backdrop to learn and network and explore during the one-day fieldtrip.
The conference is organised by TNO, in partnership with the non-profit Stichting Planet Earth Foundation through its programme Earth Dynamics.
The Bonaire Conference 2016 has in part been made possible by a gracious grant from the KNAW (The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences).
