One of the most important aspects of our wildlife discovery events is the fact that they are always 100% free. We believe the wonders of the island’s natural heritage belong to everyone, and we love being able to share them. At each event, our generous sponsors are the ones who make this possible, providing all the funding for our events so we can make them totally free. This year, we have seven fantastic sponsors, many of which have been supporting Les Fruits de Mer for years. Thank you!!!
