Welcome to the Virgin Islands Marine and Advisory Service (VIMAS) home page for St. Thomas and St. John!

VIMAS aims to increase awareness about marine and environmental science topics within the Virgin Islands' community through active engagement in the schools and at community events. Preserving the very essence of our natural resources begins with education that leads towards environmental awareness and action.
