Save The Date: Fundraising Auction Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire
Kralendijk, 30 May 2017
– Due to popular demand, Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire (STCB) will be organizing another Fundraising Auction this year. The Auction will take place at El Encanto Boutique Hotel (formerly Hotel Roomer) on the evening of November 25th 2017.

The Fundraising Auction is a great creative project that combines creativity, fun, nature education and fundraising. The purpose of the project is to raise much needed funds for STCB, to help to protect Bonaire’s endangered sea turtles; which includes nesting beach protection and habitat conservation and aims to reduce the threats to Bonaire’s sea turtles.

STCB’s Project Coordinator, Dr. Sue Willis: ‘‘The first Fundraising Auction, which took place in 2014 at Hotel Roomer, was a great success: the artworks were absolutely stunning, and every piece was successfully auctioned. We are very excited to be running this successful Fundraiser again and are hoping that artists from Bonaire and further afield will join our Auction once more!’’

How will it work? Participants will decorate and donate a plywood version of the STCB turtle image, available from the STCB office (Kaya Korona #53), or create their own artwork. Once the artwork is complete, artists will return it, ready to hang, to be auctioned at El Encanto Boutique Hotel on 25th November 2017. Artworks will also be exhibited at the STCB office and selected locations prior to the auction, and promoted through the STCB Fundraising website: In addition, STCB would be grateful for donations of items that can be auctioned or raffled at their Fundraising Auction. Please contact STCB so that they can collect any items. To thank you for your donation, STCB will give a shout-out on their website, Facebook and Instagram page.
