Lora, parrot of Bonaire.

Bonaire has a special species of bird: the Lora, or yellow-winged Amazon. These parrots are beautiful to behold with their vibrant green plumage and strikingly colored foreheads. Through their diet of seeds, nuts, fruits and flowers, they help spread plant seeds, which is essential for the island’s biodiversity. Bonaire has established several programs to protect these colorful birds. The local community and tourists are also urged to be respectful of these animals. Through joint efforts by local people, government and international organizations, there is hope that the Lora parrot will not only survive, but thrive on this beautiful island.

My name is Casper Douma and I am a photographer. Since 2014 I’ve been living on this beautiful island, surrounded by a fringing reef. At first glance, you may see mostly cacti and drought, but Bonaire is a little gem if you get to know it better. I would like to take you on one of my photography tours to show you all the special places of Bonaire. In small groups of maximum 4 people I give you a unique look at the beauty of Bonaire.
