Special BioNews: Dutch Caribbean reefs

Following the Royal Palace Symposium in the Netherlands in December 2016, and the harsh call to action by Professor Jeremy Jackson (Scripps Institution for Oceanography) that, if drastic action is not taken to protect them, our coral reefs could disappear within the next 15 years, DCNA has spent the past year collecting and collating all the available information on the status of coral reefs in the Dutch Caribbean. This special edition of BioNews, containing reviews of the status of coral reefs on Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, Saba Bank, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten, is the result of that work.
