Welcome to our conservation network

The Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance is regional network of protected areas set up to help and assist the park management and conservation organisations on the islands of Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten. Together we are working to safeguard our unique natural world.


The Lesser Antillean Iguana is quickly and quietly disappearing from the Caribbean. Your generous support is needed to ensure Statia’s iguana is here to stay. Adopting one of our beautiful wild iguanas makes a one-of-a-kind gift.

Visit the Save Our Species Website to learn more about the project and how you can help save Statia’s Iguana.

    Species in the Spotlight:

    Monarch Butterfly

    The Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is known around the world for its unique and incredible mass migrations. Millions of Monarch butterflies travel south each winter from the United States and Canada to California and the volcanic mountains in Central Mexico to escape the cold weather. In places where the weather is warm year-round, Monarch butterflies do not migrate but stay in that one area for their entire lives. This is the case for the Dutch Caribbean Islands, where these butterflies are a common sight year-round.
