Little Key Island

NATURE FOUNDATION SXM: Proposal to make Little Key a protected nature park moves forward in government

On July 12, 2023 the Ministry of VROMI announced its pre-approval of Little Key island as a protected nature park. The efforts were made between the government, Nature Foundation and Environmental Protection for the Caribbean (EPIC).



The Nature Foundation first identified Little Key as a desirable area for protection status in 2013. At 2500 m2, the proposed islet park represents only a modest portion of St. Maarten’s terrestrial area, but its status as a protected site will prevent development, fishing, and anchoring near or on the island.
