The Big Live Nature Quiz was created to teach citizens about conservation in a fun and interactive way, to instill pride in the islands’ wildlife, support nature-friendly practices, support the projects of the nature parks and to bring people in the Dutch Caribbean into contact with each other. This is an annual event for adults and children. The next edition for adults is planned for the spring of 2023.

The Big Live Nature Quiz is subsidized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV) and the DCNA activities are supported by the Dutch Postcode Lottery.
