Project Summary:
Following the devastating 2017 hurricane season, improving island resilience to extreme weather events is at the forefront of the BVI community’s mind. This project will promote the value of natural coastal+marine habitats in providing protection against future extreme weather. Focusing on the small inhabited island of Jost Van Dyke, we will assess the resilience of key terrestrial and marine habitats, establish environmental baselines, produce long-term management plans, increase awareness of the value of key habitats and implement resilience recovery measures.
