Fundacion Parke National Arikok interns Els Hesse and Jean-Paul Moquette from the Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands have been surveying seagrass abundance and health in the Parke Marino Aruba over the past months. Besides this biophysical monitoring they are now conducting a survey “to understand the level of awareness and perception of the general public about the importance of seagrass”.

FPNA would like to invite you to participate in and share this survey. The survey will take about 5 minutes and is available in 4 languages. Your input is very important to us and to the future of Parke Marino Aruba.
