The Nature Conservancy has been working in the U.S. Virgin Islands since
we first began to address conservation challenges in the Caribbean more
than 40 years ago. Almost three decades ago, the Conservancy established
a nature preserve on St. Croix called Estate Little Princess, which became
the headquarters of our Virgin Islands’ program. Today, the Conservancy is
implementing ecosystem-based solutions to conserve the vital marine and
coastal habitats, like coral reefs and mangroves, that protect vulnerable
shorelines, support livelihoods, preserve biodiversity and safeguard wildlife.
