Through Dutch Postcode Lottery’s (NPL) game “Kraak de Koffer”, actor Everon Jackson Hooi from Curaçao donated 10.000 euros to the Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA). DCNA will use this money for projects to safeguard nature in the Dutch Caribbean by assisting the Protected Area Management Organizations on Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, St Eustatius and St Maarten.
DCNA is very thankful for this donation. Nature on the Dutch Caribbean islands, which includes its coral reefs, mangroves and elfin forest, is unique and important but also fragile and under threat. The money will be used to support activities to strengthening the institutional capacity and financial position of the Protected Area Management Organizations, youth nature education, and promoting awareness of actions needed to address global conservation challenges (such as climate change) in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom.
