“Leading the afternoon session, Brent Murry asked attendees to come up with how they envisioned the landscape – natural and urban – on the islands in five or 10 years. He then asked if that vision is what people really wanted the landscape to look like. He said conservation groups are often good on high-level objectives but action needed to be taken at the ground level.
Murry represented Caribbean Landscape Conservation Cooperative, a partnership trying to advance science and action for the future of natural and cultural resources. This cooperative of conservation entities looks to conserve landscape while maintaining ecosystem integrity, human well-being, and the preservation of cultural and historical resources. It has two pilot programs in Puerto Rico and is looking to establish another in the Virgin Islands.
Murry said a similar meeting was held last month on St. Thomas and that another public meeting on the action plan is tentatively scheduled on St. Thomas for March 22.”
