Biodiversity conservation and restoration
The Saba Conservation Foundation (SCF) is a nongovernmental organization established in 1987 with a mission to preserve and manage Saba’s natural and cultural heritage. The mission of SCF is to commit to the preservation and enhancement of the marine and terrestrial environment on Saba through education, scientific research, monitoring, and enforcement.
Institutionalized forms of nature conservation in Saba date back to 1987, when the first protected area, the Saba Marine Park, was established and when the Saba Conservation Foundation (SCF) was incorporated. In developing policy and legislation for nature conservation and management, the Island Government works closely with the Saba Conservation Foundation, a private non-profit foundation. Furthermore, the SCF fulfills an important role as advisory body for Government and as management agency for protected areas.
The SCF also manages the Saba National Park, the Saba trail network, the Saba Trail and Information Center.
