Environemental Profile

"An Environmental Profile of the Island of Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands" , completed in September, 2009 provides an overview of the facts, challenges, and opportunities of the island of Jost Van Dyke.  Researched and produced by the Island Resources Foundation, the profile serves as a baseline document for all who are interested in the island; and it provides an effective means to ensure that environmental issues are addressed in development planning.  The Profile is being distributed to a wide range of BVI agencies and community leaders to maximize is value.  On Jost van Dyke copies for review are at the District Officer's office and at the Preservation Society office.

The profile is available here in two forms.  A complete 149 page version is available, plus a chapter-by-chapter format is also available.  The numbered chapters each include findings in the research plus recommendations for action.

For those interested in the flora and fauna, see Chapter 3 for extensive information.  For history buffs, check out Chapters 5 and 6.

Recently buying a home in the British Virgin Islands has become kind of a fad after many people of celebrity status made real estate purchases, like Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic, Myrna Colley Lee, ex-wife of famous actor Morgan Freeman. If you have an interest in making real estated investsments, check out Chapter 7 and 8 for more information

If you have a particular interest in new research based upon the profile's findings, please let us know...There is a lot of work to do!
