"Sea & Learn on Saba" invites you to explore nature and enhance your environmental awareness.
Saba, a tiny Caribbean island just 28 miles from St. Maarten is hosting its annual "Sea & Learn on Saba" event during the month of October. Saba, known as "The Unspoiled Queen," will highlight its nature and preservation efforts during the event. A variety of naturalists, scientists and academics in fields ranging from sharks and frogfish to hummingbirds and orchids, will provide casual but informative multimedia presentations. Interested parties are invited to join field/research projects or assist in nature surveys conducted throughout the event.
The timing of the daily Sea & Learn events is scheduled to allow visitors and locals alike to enjoy their day on Saba, whether diving, hiking or just relaxing. A "happy hour" environment is provided at different venues so that dinner plans are easily accommodated after the nightly session. Field and research project scheduling varies and will be announced in advance.
Sea & Learn on Saba is a non-profit foundation. The month-long event is sponsored by island and regional businesses. All events are open to the public and free of charge. The key to sustaining Saba's unique environment as well as other habitats in the world lies in the hands of future generations; therefore, invited nature experts also conduct projects and presentations for Saba's youth.
