Yearly Quiz for adults and kids 

The DCNA supports Aruba National Park Foundation, STINAPA Bonaire, CARMABI on Curaçao, Saba Conservation Foundation, STENAPA on St Eustatius and Nature Foundation Sint Maarten amongst others with their nature education programs. The online Big Live Nature Quiz was created to educate citizens about nature conservation in a fun interactive way, to instill pride about the islands’ nature, encourage eco-friendly practices, support the parks conservation projects, and to connect people throughout the Dutch Caribbean. This is a yearly event for adults and kids. The next Adults edition is planned for the spring of 2022.
