That's why we're often a proud sponsor of the Sea & Learn Foundation on Saba, a true champion for environmental awareness and cultural heritage in the Dutch Caribbean.

Sea & Learn isn't your typical foundation. Founded by Lynn Costenaro, it brings together locals and visitors in a unique educational crusade. By inviting leading naturalists, scientists and academics from around the world, Sea & Learn offers workshops, lectures, and hands-on activities that illuminate the wonders and challenges facing Saba's environment. From the vibrant coral reefs teeming with life to the lush rainforests blanketing the island's slopes, participants gain a deeper understanding of Saba's delicate balance.

But Sea & Learn goes beyond education. They translate knowledge into action. Their "Science SEAkers" program empowers 6th graders at the Sacred Heart School, fostering a new generation of environmental stewards. Each month focuses on a different aspect of Saba's environment, aligned with the Nature and Environmental Policy Plan (NEPP). From waste management and sustainable agriculture to erosion control and coral restoration, Sea & Learn equips students with the tools they need to protect their island home.

The impact extends beyond the classroom. The "Create & Learn" program revitalizes traditional Saban crafts and art forms, connecting younger generations with their cultural heritage. This fosters a sense of community pride and encourages sustainable practices that respect the island's unique character.

Winair is proud to support Sea & Learn's mission. By sponsoring their events and facilitating travel for visiting scientists, we contribute to this vital educational exchange. We believe in the power of knowledge and community to create a more sustainable future for Saba and the entire Caribbean.
