More than half of Saba’s nature affected by Irma

THE BOTTOM – About 60 percent of Saba’s nature in general was devastated as a result of the recent hurricane Irma. According to Kai Wulf, Park Manager at the Saba Conservation Foundation, the top priorities of the foundation and it’s team of volunteers are clearing the hiking trails and combating further damage by invasive to the land and sea. 

“Of course it looks really really bad right now, but we are looking to the future very positive. Nature has over the centuries learned to cope with such events, so sooner or later the nature will come back. Sometimes these events also act as a renewal,” said Wulf of the state of nature on the island.
