GREAT BAY – The St. Maarten Nature Foundation has been advising and mentoring a number of high school students with various environmentally themed projects. Particularly students of the Milton Peters College and the Learning Unlimited Preparatory School have been receiving support on various innovative and conservation oriented projects. “One of our most important tasks is to guide students and offer assistance when it comes to projects and programs centered around the environment, biology and ecosystem management on St. Maarten. We encourage all of the students to not only conduct the necessary research for their grades or for Science Fairs but to also submit their reports and findings to the necessary Departments within Government as solid proposals for the enhancement of the Environment on St. Maarten.,” a press release from the Nature Foundation stated.

Some of the projects the Foundation supports are centered on the Simpson Bay Lagoon, waste water, sea turtles and coral reef ecosystems.  “The only way to really know what is happening with regards to environmental degradation and damage is to research it and to communicate the research to the public and the decision makers. No one is better equipped to do this than the students at the local high schools. The Nature Foundation is encouraging all students interested in Environmental Management and Conservation to contact the foundation on manager@naturefoundationsxm.org or to send a message on the St. Maarten Nature Foundation Facebook Account,” the statement concluded.
