Mission Statement

St. John Land Conservancy (SJLC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) community organization dedicated to the protection of lands of cultural importance & natural beauty ​on St. John U.S. Virgin Islands

Description

We share the concern that St. John is threatened with the destruction of natural habitat, cultural resources, and the loss of public access. We are very proud of our first accomplishment - the preservation of historic Haulover on the East End of St. John in 2011 and 2014. These 3.6 acres of unspoiled beach property, fronting both north and south bays, were to be sold to off-island concerns for condominium development. The history, culture and life that this land sustains are now saved for all to enjoy.

Our second main accomplishment was the preservation of the eastern tip of Lovango Cay. This lovely piece of land - more than an acre on the very easternmost tip of Lovango - ​has been set aside for our community for public enjoyment, both scenic and otherwise, by current and future generations. The scenery and nature of this land and surrounding waters will be maintained, thanks to this generous donation and the efforts of all involved with the SJLC.
