The local government is changing the protected status of the Bonaire National Marine Park for commercial purposes.Residents and nature conservation organizations are protesting against this because it would mean that a large pier with two cafes, a restaurant, a kitchen and a dive school would be built next to Karelís Beach Bar. Two local nature organizations, SeaTurtle Conservation Bonaire and Stinapa as well as 96 private persons have lodged an appeal with the Dutch Caribbean Court. Despite a critical report on the negative impact of allowing a recreational pier to be built in the underwater park and more than 700 notices of objection against this development, the Executive Council approved the revision of the Spatial Development Plan of Bonaire (the ROB). The intention is to make it possible for a concrete construction to be built in the marine park. :(
