During their recent Conservation Week Aruba 2020, the Junior Rangers of Arikok National Park participated in a clean-up at Ramsar site Spaans Lagoen. Additionally the Park Rangers placed some important signs for the conservation of our unique Ramsar area.

Conserving biodiversity is essential: not only because plants and animals have a right to survive, but also because conservation supports the well-being of people. After all, nature is our foundation. Aruba’s national park Arikok organized their first Conservation Week last July.

Nature calls

The Arikok National Park is worth the ride. We love the hikes that are guided by the park’s rangers whose job is to maintain trails and protect natural resources. The flora and fauna are beautiful and the historical sites tell you about the island’s indigenous roots. If you are not up to walking, you can drive through the park, one way or another this park is a great place to spend an entire day. Cruising through the landscape you end up at some of the most stunning beaches like Dos Playa or Daimara Beach. In total the park consists of 7907 acres protected nature with a richness of animals living in it. The Aruban whiptail lizard (cododo), Aruban cat eye snake (santanero) and endangered rattle snake (cascabel) are just some of them, you can also admire these close in the park’s Visitors’ Center.
