Jacko,our last baboon, who lived at the Zoo for many years, died quietly in his sleep in May 2013.

The Zoo donated Jacko’s skull to Dr. Haviser and SIMARC for their science display on skeletons.
Jacko, even after his death, continues to teach our youth.

Dr. Haviser wrote a very interesting article on Jacko  which I think you all will enjoy.

The Board of the St Maarten Zoological and Botanical Foundation met recently and held new Board elections.

Pictured left to right are:

Melanie Choisy: elected Assistant Secretary

Amy Arrindell: elected Vice-President

Barbara Cannegieter: Public Relations Officer

Fons O’Connor : Treasurer

Martin Holtermann: elected Board member

Tina Arents: Secretary

Rob Heil: President

The existing Board of the Foundation. which has worked together many years, welcomes these new members and looks forward to being able to implement new direction for the Zoo.

Although the Zoo currently is managed by an N.V. operation, this arrangement will terminate in a few months and the Board will once again take over the running of the Zoo.

We will be announcing new initiatives for the Zoo and hope. with the help of the community, to be able to make many new improvements there.
