The Value of the LVV Site on Bonaire for Birds
Advice on the importance of this area for birds on Bonaire
Bonaire is blessed with splendid nature, both above and below water. Due to their special natural values, various areas on and around Bonaire have a protected status. This applies to important areas such as the Bonaire National Marine Park, the Washington-Slagbaai National Park, the Pekelmeer, and Lac Bay.
The Public Body Bonaire (OLB) has indicated in 2020 that it wants to focus on better protection of nature and the development of ecotourism. This choice is in line with the Strategic Tourism Plan Bonaire and with the Blue Destination concept as embraced by the OLB.
In this memorandum, I would like to draw your attention to the natural values of an area on Bonaire that does not have a protected status, namely the site of and near the sewage treatment plant. For the sake of convenience, I will refer to this area as the LVV area below.
