As an organization committed to the protection and preservation of the natural and cultural resources of Virgin Islands National Park, Friends of Virgin Islands National Park is concerned about the future of Caneel Bay.
We are committed to finding a solution for the Caneel Bay property that recognizes the St. John and St. Thomas communities as a voice in the planning and negotiating for the future lease and/or concession agreements; and as Laurance Rockefeller intended with the extinguishment of the RUE in 2023, that any negotiated lease or concession agreements provide the St. John community and visitors greater access to the property as part of our Virgin Islands National Park.
