US Virgin Islands

The U.S. Virgin Islands share vibrant natural beauty: lush green hillsides, inviting white-sand beaches, and astonishing blue bays and inlets. But these iconic natural resources are at risk from development, which scars the land and pollutes picturesque waters.

Since 1999, The Trust for Public Land has worked to protect sensitive lands across the U.S. Virgin Islands, conserving coral reefs, critical habitat, historic ruins, and the natural resources that support the West Indian way of life. Our experts work closely with communities to address their conservation needs so that future generations can enjoy this island paradise as we do today.
