The island is uninhabited and accessible only by a pedestrian- and bike-friendly ferry that runs between the small port at Nieuwendijk and Tiengemeten.
One of the many ways ExxonMobil prioritizes the preservation of our natural resources is by supporting environmental protection and community engagement projects. Last year, ExxonMobil contributed more than $65,000 to a 4.5-hectare nature reserve on Tiengemeten. Most of the contribution went to support a recreational area for children, but the park also includes a picnic area, playhouse and beach area. The island provides a breeding ground for nearly 100 species of birds.
