The Prince Bernhard Nature Fund was established in 1994 by the late Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. The Fund’s mission is to support small, preferably local initiatives towards the conservation and wise use of nature and our natural resource base. Effectively the Fund aims to help save critically endangered flora and fauna.
In 2006, the Fund donated $34,500 to DCNA supporting the development of a series of guidebooks for the protected areas of the Dutch Caribbean. The first publication launched in 2008 – “the Guidebook to the St. Eustatius National Marine Park”.
