Beach Restoration Project Expanded For 2013

U.S. Virgin Islands

Eco Serendib Villa and Spa, an ecofriendly, luxury retreat on St. John, recently announced more than $15,000 in additional funding to Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park, a non-profit dedicated to the preservation and protection of the national park, for the continuation of the Eco Serendib Beach Restoration Project. This year the project will be expanded to include Hawksnest, Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay and Francis Bay.

The restoration project, which was initiated last year, protects the island’s coastline from the damaging impact of erosion while reducing the carbon footprint by re-introducing indigenous trees and shrubs, at beaches throughout the island.

“The main attractions of St. John are our beautiful beaches and the national park. If our beaches are eroded, it will not only hurt us environmentally, but will negatively impact tourism.” said Brion FitzGerald, superintendent of Virgin Islands National Park. “We appreciate Eco Serendib’s support of this project which will allow for planting some 216 native trees on our pristine beaches.”
