About Stenapa


We are the St. Eustatius National Parks Foundation, also known as STENAPA. We manage three protected areas and a botanical garden on the island of St. Eustatius (Statia).
The St. Eustatius Island Government identified 33km² of land and sea to be protected under law in order to preserve nature on Statia. We are mandated to manage and maintain this area for the benefit of the community. We work every day to protect the fragile tropical ecosystems and endangered species found on St. Eustatius.

Vision/Mission


Working with the people of St. Eustatius to protect our rich forests and foster healthy coral reefs for the people and wildlife of our community.

Treasures we pass to our children.
