Call me paranoid, but I feel as though trump may be eyeing St. John for another of his golf courses. This fills me with dread for this, the most pristine of our Virgins. If it comes to that I will fight tooth and nail to stop it.

The US has not withdrawn any sites from the UNESCO biosphere reserve previous to 2017. This is a first.

t the same time, the council approved requests by the U.S. and Bulgaria to remove some of those countries’ biosphere reserves from the official list. The U.S. withdrew 17 sites (out of the country’s previous total of 47 sites), and Bulgaria withdrew three. Prior to this year, a total of 18 sites had been removed from the program since 1997, by seven countries.
