Our Wish List

Are you planning a trip to Bonaire and got space left in your luggage?

Finding exactly what we need for our work on Bonaire is often difficult and shipping materials and tools can be expensive. Bringing items and tools from our wish list is a great option to make a tangible difference for Bonaire’s coral reefs!

Each item on the list is a critical tool to helping us achieve our mission. Click on any item to see an example of the brand or model that is most effective for us to use. Each link will take you to a retailer, but feel free to shop around.

Since many of the links below are from Amazon, we invite you to link your Amazon account with our AmazonSmile nonprofit profile. When you shop on AmazonSmile (simply by changing any amazon.com link to smile.amazon.com), you will find the same products and prices as Amazon, but AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of every eligible purchase to Reef Renewal! Click here to link your account and support us every time you shop!

We try to keep this list as updated as possible but you can contact us to further clarify our current needs. The donated items and materials can be dropped off at our offices located at the Buddy Dive dock (85 Kaya Gob. N. Debrot).

Feel free to get as few or as many items from this list as you like! If there is an amount listed next to an item, it indicates the total amount that we need, not the total amount that you need to bring – feel free to bring as many as you like!
