The Wetlands project will provide a long-term framework to promote conservation of Aruba’s diverse ecological system and critically important wetlands. Wetlands provide habitat for thousands of species of aquatic and terrestrial plants and animals. This project aims at fostering wetlands connectivity via corridors, ensuring that the flora and fauna can move between the wetlands.
This project will enhance Aruba’s compromise towards sustainable nature experiences, flood protection, water improvement, shoreline erosion control, natural products, recreation, and aesthetics. It will include watch towers, diverse landscaping views, visitor’s center and a museum as well as a multi functional space. All of this will be designed from a nature based perspective.
