BioNews is a monthly newsletter by the Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA), focusing on the biodiversity research and monitoring in the Dutch Caribbean. BioNews presents you with an overview of the on-going research and monitoring efforts and provides a regular update on what’s currently happening on our islands.
This month’s issue focuses on the conservation efforts for the Red-billed Tropicbird, which is taking place on the islands of Saba and St. Eustatius. Preliminary studies last year indicated that at two study sites on Saba breeding success was zero. One of the prime culprits appears to be feral cats. All the more reason to bring this species to the spotlight and ask your attention for the plight of this charismatic and locally endangered sea bird.
Amongst others, you will find in this fourth issue:
- Two-way route for Long-nosed Bats between Bonaire and Curacao
- ‘Research of the Month‘: Conservation Science: Red-billed Tropicbirds on Saba and St. Eustatius
- TEEB study: “What is St. Eustatius’ and Saba’s Nature Worth?”
- Nature Policy Plan Caribbean Netherlands published
