Located in St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands, the Benner Bay Wildlife and Marine Sanctuary represents over six square miles of mangrove habitat. The bay is known as a “hurricane hole,” an ideal location to moor a boat during a hurricane due to the wind buffering protection offered by the mangroves. More than 70 percent of the nearby island of St. John consists of a National Park.
