St. Maarten – The St. Maarten Nature Foundation will start its after school Snorkel Club Program once again on Wednesday April 27th 2011. The program is patr of a continued effort to educating young people  and stressing the important role they play in the future of nature conservation. The program also teaches snorkelling skills and marine conservation.

Children will be given ten lessons.  Each lesson consists of both theoretical and practical elements. Lessons will include snorkelling skills, marine naturalist courses, introduction to scuba diving, hiking tours, and a special closing activity.

Children who attend the Snorkel Club will receive a copy of the How to Snorkel Manual, a Nature Foundation T-shirt, Fish Identification Cards and wetsuits for sun protection, all of which they can keep. After graduating from the snorkel club the children will have the opportunity to continue on to become Nature Foundation Junior Rangers.

Snorkel Club is held every Wednesday from 2:00 p.m to 4:00 pm and every Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and costs twenty five guilders for the ten lessons. Parents are urged to register their children early due to limited space.

The Snorkel Club program was made possible through the generous denotation and support from the TELEM Group of Companies; The Scuba Shop; and Island Water World, in particular the Dive Buddy division and manager Ivor Azille who donated the snorkel sets. Interested parents can contact the Nature Foundation at 544-4267 or via email at
