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.

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 next to the Harbour Village Marina: Kaya Gob. N. Debrot #69,Marina Market Square, Office #3.
