Young red mangrove tree in the Benner Bay Mangrove Marine Sanctuary, Virgin Islands

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.
