Kralendijk – The World Wide Fund for Nature the Netherlands (WWF-NL) is developing an online, interactive exhibition that will visually demonstrate the history of coral reefs in the Dutch Caribbean. WWF-NL urges individuals to submit their photos or videos that portray the coral reefs of the six Dutch Caribbean islands.

The exhibition will highlight the beauty, scope, and biodiversity of our past and present reefs and will be used by WWF-NL to raise awareness about the importance of protecting coral reefs in our region. One of the main goals WWF-NL works towards is preserving the unique coral reefs in the Dutch Caribbean and the purpose of this project is to show if and how coral reefs have changed over time.

Photos and videos can help the organization to tell this story. All submissions are welcome. It can be from yesterday or all the way back to when underwater cameras were first invented. The collected materials will be made available for future conservation work via an online archive.

More information about the project can be found on the website
