Educate to Protect
Dive Friends Bonaire is a proud sponsor of the Sea First Foundation which is dedicated to helping humanity realize how essential the ocean is to all life and take actions to protect it.
They organize activities and lectures about the importance of the sea, fisheries and aquaculture, pollution at sea, climate change and ocean acidification, and welfare of marine animals.
Although Bonaire does not have a bottle recycling plant on the island yet, we’re taking steps in the right direction by separating our recyclable glass from the rest of our trash.
Dive Friends Bonaire has yellow bottle recycling bins set up at each of our dive locations. Just ask any crew member and remember to bring by your empties at the end of your stay!
The batteries that we use in our dive lights are rechargeable and we encourage our divers to use the same. However, if your strobes, lights, or gadgets require batteries, please don’t throw the used ones in the trash.
If they go to the landfill, they can cause environmental damage. We have special battery disposal containers at each of our locations for you to drop them off.
