Over the past few months I have seen messages about the development of Klein Bonaire.I understand there is a movement to purchase and preserve the island. My question is this,is it a realistic possibility?

There has been a movement to purchase and preserve the island for several years now, but the owners have not been willing to deal. Late last month the government passed a nature policy plan, which in effect makes it impossible for the owner of the island to develop on Klein Bonaire, and basically makes the value of the land minimal at a commercial level. Part of the plan is that the government, via STINAPA and the Bonaire Marine Park, has control of the 50 meters of land from the water inland - once you figure out how much that is it doesn't leave much.

I second that emotion! I am sure that this is a very happy culmination of the hard work of a lot of people.
