Fun Online Game about Animals throughout the Dutch Caribbean
On Friday July 2nd, the Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA) hosted its first Big Live Nature Quiz for adults on Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, St. Eustatius, and St. Maarten. A total of 39 teams/100+ team members consisting of 1-4 players participated in the online, live and interactive quiz. After many exciting and thrilling nature question rounds, a team on Bonaire won. Second place went to a team on Aruba and third place to another team on Bonaire.
The online Big Live Nature Quiz is created to educate citizens about nature in a fun interactive way, to instil pride about the islands’ nature, encourage eco-friendly practices, support the parks conservation projects, and to connect people throughout the Dutch Caribbean.
Yearly Free Quiz for Adults and Kids
The goal is to make this a yearly event for both adults and kids. In 2020, the first edition for kids was launched. For 2021, the kids’ edition is currently planned for the beginning of October. Stay tuned for your next chance to learn more about the nature of the Dutch Caribbean.
Live and Interactive Quiz
Teams could participate in two ways. Teams were invited to play from home/online with friends and family or join at one of the broadcast locations.
The Quiz was online and live. Therefore, all teams from the Dutch Caribbean islands could participate at the same time as well as interact with each other and the host of the program.
Broadcast locations included Hillside on Bonaire, Long Haul on Saba, and Dinghy Dock Sailors Bar on St. Maarten. A big thank you to these establishments along with STINAPA Bonaire, CARMABI on Curaçao, Aruba National Park Foundation, Saba Conservation Foundation (SCF), STENAPA on St Eustatius and Nature Foundation Sint Maarten (NFSXM) for their support with this event.
Theme: Dutch Caribbean animals
The BLNQ consisted of 35 trivia questions with the following categories: Marine Animals, Terrestrial Animals, Sounds in Nature, Special Island Animals, and People and Nature. There was a brief break in the middle to grab some food and drinks and power up for the second half.
