Yahoo! Cinnamon Bay Beach is officially open. I know, I know...a lot of folks have already been going down there, but it's now official. Many truckloads of debris were removed to clear a path to the beach, but there is still a tangled mess off to the sides, so please just enjoy the beach and resist the urge to wander..

Cultures uniting to aid Virgin Islands National Park.

Great news today! The North Shore Road is open thanks to the hard work of NPS staff and the Arrowhead Hotshot crew that have come to assist. Travel with extreme caution as parts of the road are only one lane! #nps #virginislands #irma

Countless visitors to Cinnamon Bay have marveled at the great Rain Tree that stands by the campground restaurant. At about 200 years of age, this magnificent tree withstood the hurricanes, and is now putting out new green leaves!
Encouraging signs like this proves that our island is on the road to recovery.

Hello from Virgin Islands National Park!
Thank you to all for the kind wishes and thoughts.
The damage to the island of St. John and the park from Hurricanes Irma and Maria is devastating. Many homes have been left uninhabitable. Trees have been stripped of their leaves, and historic park ruins have sustained significant damage.
Thankfully recovery is underway. Roads have been mostly cleared of debris, utility poles, and wires. Food and water is being distributed throughout the islands. Communication areas have been established. Some trees have even begun to grow new green leaves.
Until further notice, the Cruz Bay visitor center is closed, park guided activities are cancelled and lifeguards are not on duty.
St. John, and Virgin Islands National Park, will come back stronger than ever! We hope you come visit when we are back up and running.

The hatches are battened! Boats are tied up, windows are shuttered, and we are waiting on Irma.
Please stay safe everyone! #hurricaneirma #vinationalpark #usvi #hurricane #stjohn

We have had FIVE confirmed sea turtle nests hatched in the park! The most recent hatching was of Green sea turtles found this morning, a species that does not usually nest on St. John.
Because of the turtle monitoring program and placement of protective screen nets, there was zero depredation of the nests by dogs or mongooses.

117 live hatchlings resulted from this one nest, including two turtles still buried in the sand (they received a helping hand from Turtle Coordinator Adren and the volunteers). This is an impressive 79% hatching success rate.

Thank you to all our volunteers monitoring park beaches! This is the exciting outcome we have been hoping for!! Photos by Stephanie Guyer-Stevens.

Congratulations to the turtle hatchlings that emerged from their nest last night! Tiny tracks were found while conducting a turtle monitoring beach walk.
If you notice any evidence of turtle nests, please let our Turtle Coordinator Adren know at adrenand@gmail.com or contact the park at 340-776-6201.
Thank you to all our turtle volunteers!
