Natuurherstel salina’s en baaien Caribisch Nederland (BO-43-117-007)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


Bonaire's saliñas (salt lakes) and bays provide important ecosystem services, including coastal protection, flood mitigation, nutrient and sediment capture and retention, as well as increasing biodiversity by harboring unique habitats such as seagrass beds and mangroves on which many species depend. However, many of the saliñas and bays on Bonaire are threatened by eutrophication and silting, causing water quality to deteriorate with negative effects on nature. This project aims to map the local causes and extent of silting and eutrophication and its effects on the abiotic conditions and biodiversity in the saliñas and bays of Bonaire. Next, the obtained information will be used for the development, implementation and evaluation of cost-effective measures for nature restoration in these important ecosystems.
