The Virgin Islands Network of Environmental Educators (VINE) is a network of environmental education and outreach professionals from more than 25 local agencies and community groups that are working to improve the quality of environmental and cultural education programs available to Virgin Island’s youth.

VINE:

  • Builds capacity for environmental and cultural education in the Virgin Islands;
  • Links K-12 educators, natural & cultural resource organizations, and community leaders;
  • Provides teachers with Science Inquiry-based and Experiential Learning Workshops; and
  • Provides environmental and cultural education to teachers, youth, and community groups.

As part of the Leave Paradise in Its Place campaign, Jenn Travis shares information with a group of tourists about reef organisms and reef health before she takes them snorkelling at Chenay Bay.
