The population of Queen Conch in Bonaire’s Lac Bay-Sorobon area has decreased considerably over the past years. This is due to poaching, shell collecting and increased human impact. The Lac Bay ecosystem is in danger. To re-enable a sustainable, healthy population of Queen Conch we need to protect the Queen Conch and the Lac Bay area. Hence the start of the Bonaire Conch Restoration Project in 2010-2013, which aimed to create awareness, monitor the conch living in Lac and involve local fisherman in the protection of the area.
