Welcome to the Virgin Islands Marine and Advisory Service (VIMAS) home page for St. Thomas and St. John. VIMAS aims to increase awareness within the community about marine and environmental issues present in the Virgin Islands. This is achieved by engaging educators, politicians, and both governmental and non-governmental entities; fostering collaborations that through time promote and encourage the concept of marine stewardship. Preserving the very essence of our natural resources begins with education that modifies behavior towards environmental awareness and action.
