Protect the British Virgin Islands Marine Area From Development

Beef Island is an ecologically important area in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) complete with live corals (including the endangered Elkhorn Coral), one of the most important mangrove systems, precious salt ponds and the Hans Creek Lagoon System - all integral parts of the island's ecosystem and local fishing economy. Rare and elusive species of wildlife, including Caribbean roseate flamingos and West Indian whistling-ducks, depend on Beef Island habitat for their survival. But a planned five-star hotel, marina and golf course are threatening the existence of this world treasure!

The Virgin Islands Environmental Council is taking legal action to stop the development and to ensure that the government adheres to the procedures set forth in law. Help protect this world treasure today by telling BVI Premier Ralph T. O'Neal that the health of marine ecosystems is important to you!

In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
