Climate Change

Climate change is a worldwide issue that affects us all. Small islands like ours should not be passive bystanders but need to be part of the global discussion. Just recently, STINAPA Bonaire’s Junior Rangers held at debate about the island’s best approach to tackling climate change; they dove deep to explore the root causes associated with climate change and its specific impacts to Bonaire, notably the damage it would cause to its key tourism product – coral reefs.

Climate change is a big and sometimes intimidating topic. There is a lot of information out there, from the different causes to the different environmental and social impacts to the ways each one of us can try and minimize our own contribution to the problem. Below are some great resources that will help you better understand the subject of climate change; we hope this in turn will inspire you to educate others around you about the issue and take action.
