Donation for Nature Foundation



PHILIPSBURG – Trainee Emma Pratt from the St. Maarten Nature Foundation gladly accepted a US $230 donation from local eco tour company Seagrape Tours.

Seagrape Tours is grateful for the various projects of the Nature Foundation, one of which is the coral reforestation project on which Pratt is working.

“Without healthy coral reefs around St. Maarten we would hardly have any protection from big storm waves, no white sandy beaches, since corals are turned into sand by reef fish, and no fish to attract visitors to our shores,” said Ilja Botha, Owner of Seagrape Tours.

Seagrape Tours offers a Nature Tour on St. Maarten, which includes a short hike to Pic Paradis, birdwatching at a pond, and snorkeling off a beach.
