Helping us acquire critical new land for our National Parks Program

“As one travels the rest of the world, the appreciation always is greater for the efforts of the British Virgin Islands to maintain the difficult balance between necessary economic development and the great natural beauty bestowed upon the nation.

That beauty undoubtedly is the greatest asset of the Islands, as the majority of the citizens seem to agree. It is their support that has made possible the protection of the unspoiled beaches, the glorious hills, the pristine waters of what is certainly one of God's greatest gifts to humankind.

It is a great privilege and an honor to be a member of the trustees of the BVI National Parks, USA, Inc., a position that enables we lucky ones to help support the conservation of a corner of this globe that has become as precious to us as to the Islands' population which we so much admire.”
