Earlier this year, Bonaire launched The Bonaire Bond, a destination pledge, to invite all visitors to agree to travel responsibly and respect the island with a goal to sustain Bonaire’s natural appeal for years to come. The Bond is designed to serve as a reminder of how critical sustainable tourism is to the livelihood of our local community. For those who sign between now and Earth Day 2023, Bonaire will reinvest in its conservation efforts by adopting a coral tree through the Reef Renewal Foundation on behalf of those that commit to this cause with their signature.
