TRUST FOR VIRGIN ISLANDS LANDS
The Trust for Virgin Islands Lands is a private, non-profit, community-based conservation organization. Our mission is to protect tracts of agricultural and natural landscapes that provide significant benefits to the citizens of the Virgin Islands.
Efforts to achieve this goal include:
1. purchasing and holding threatened lands for transfer to conservation-minded ownership,
2. providing assistance to landowners wanting to limit future development through conservation easements,
3. advocating sound land use policy, and
4. fostering increased appreciation and understanding of our territory’s natural resources.
TVIL maintains an Acquisition Fund that is earmarked for purchasing land or easements for conservation. Often land with significant historical, cultural and ecological value comes up for sale at short notice, and the land trust has to act fast to make an offer on the land. Having money in our acquisition fund allows us to conserve land that might otherwise be sold for development. Our ultimate goal is to acquire land that will become a territorial park. You can donate money to the land trust and request that it be maintained in the acquisition fund. TVIL is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and contributions are fully tax-deductible to the amount allowed by law.
Please consider a donation in support of our conservation mission.
