Welcome to the official Bonaire Website

Stichting Nationale Parken Nederlandse Antillen (STINAPA), manages the protected Bonaire National Marine and Washington-Slagbaai National Parks.  

Founded in 1962, the objective was to have a foundation actively protecting nature in the Netherlands Antilles. The first activities of STINAPA were concentrated on Bonaire. Efforts were made to safeguard the breeding grounds of the Caribbean flamingo and then to create the Washington Park in 1969 - the first sanctuary of the Netherlands Antilles. In 1969, funds were raised and Slagbaai plantation completed the park.   

STINAPA manages the protected areas of Bonaire, communicates with Park visitors and cares for the preservation and conservation of nature on Bonaire in general.

STINAPA is dedicated to the conservation of Bonaire’s natural and historical heritage through the sustainable use of its resources.
