Saba Bank Designated as a Protected Area

As a direct result of the research of National Museum of Natural History scientists Mark and Diane Littler and Barrett Brooks (PLoS ONE 5(5): e10677.doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0010677), as part of a team funded by Conservation International, the Netherlands Antilles passed and published a National Decree (as of 2 October 2010, no. 94) designating the Saba Bank as a protected area. The decree prohibits anchoring (by tankers and other large ships) on the entire Bank, both in territorial waters and in the European Economic Zone (EEZ), with a few exceptions such as hydrographic survey vessels, salvage vessels, search and rescue vessels, and fishing boats from Saba, St. Eustatius, and St. Maarten with a permit to fish on the Bank. The Coastguard of the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba will be enforcing this prohibition.

With an ocean area of approximately 2,500 km2, this makes the Saba Bank the fifth largest marine protected area in the Wider Caribbean. Average depth of the Bank is about 80 feet, and there are extensive coral reefs on the eastern and south-eastern edges. New species of seaweeds, fish, and gorgonians have been discovered on the Bank which has been found to be among the richest areas of the Caribbean in seaweed diversity. Much of the area and its biodiversity still remain to be explored.

An application for Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA) status has been sent to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) by the Netherlands to be discussed at the next meeting of the environmental committee of the IMO in the spring of next year. PSSA status will allow further regulation of international shipping to protect the Bank.


The National Zoo is dedicated to furthering the education of current and future conservation professionals, including graduate students, scientists, resource managers, educators, industry representatives and staff of government and non-government organizations. Smithsonian staff and research associates have offered training courses on a variety of topics for over three decades. Building on the world-renowned training courses of the Smithsonian, new opportunities for graduates and professionals are now being offered. In collaboration with George Mason University, many of our courses are offered for either non-credit continuing education or for graduate credit. A graduate certificate is also offered for participants who take a series of required and elective courses. Professional certificate information will be available soon. All six Centers of Excellence at the National Zoo offer a variety of training opportunities.
