Organizations in the BVI

Having a relative small population compared to many places in the world, doesn't hinder the BVI from having a diverse host of organizations ranging from Rotary Clubs to International Olympic Committees, covering all types of sports. Environmentally minded, the BVI also has organizations that aim to keep the seas and wildlife found in the islands safe from over development of its precious surroundings, and the organizations work alongside with the BVI government to assure that the islands are preserved in pristine condition. Visiting members of clubs that are established in the BVI readily encourage a visit to their meetings to see what the BVI is doing to better their country, and at the same time work within the community on various fundraisers to lend a helping hand to those that may not be as fortunate.
