The Jost Van Dykes Preservation Society (JVDPS) endeavors to protect key elements of the island’s culture and environment for the future generations of all people, to see, to feel, and to understand. We are currently completing work on two major initiatives:
- Maritime Heritage Programme (The building of a 32 foot wooden island sloop and development of maritime heritage programme involving research and education).
- Community-based Programme Advancing Environmental Protection and Sustainable Development (Baseline research and publication of an Environmental Profile for Jost Van Dyke, along with a number of public outreach activities and the establish of a community research and monitoring programme).
We are a British Virgin Islands not-for-profit organisation, dedicated to the preservation of the island of Jost Van Dyke – its land, the surrounding sea, its living creatures, and its culture through conservation, cultivation, education, and research.
