VIMRCC, which encompasses several organizations, was formed in February when the University of the Virgin Islands received a $31,677 grant from the Gulf of Mexico Foundation to support debris removal and monitoring at the Mangrove Sanctuary. Funding sources also include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
