In celebration of Buck Island Reef's 50th Anniversary, NPS, together with North Shore Productions and the Harper's Ferry Center proudly presents "Caribbean Gem: Buck Island Reef National Monument.” This ten minute film was made during 2013 in celebration of 50 years of protection and resource management at Buck Island Reef NM. The film highlights the park’s primary resources and the recreational opportunities that the monument provides our on-island and off-island visitors. Buck Island Reef NM is the first of our three National Park units on St. Croix to have a park orientation film of this kind. Funding and support came from our six concessions companies that take 90% of our 40,000 annual visitors to Buck Island.
The film is being distributed for educational purposes at Christiansted National Historic Site.
