About Virgin Islands National Park
Virgin Islands National Park covers approximately 60% of the island of Saint John in the United States Virgin Islands. More than 5,500 acres of adjacent ocean, plus nearly all of Hassel Island, just off the Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas harbor are part of the park. The park is famous for scuba diving and snorkeling and has miles of hiking trails through the tropical rainforest.
In September of 2017, hurricanes Irma and Maria wreaked devastation to Virgin Islands National Park, as well as to many other islands in the Caribbean. Maria's outer eyewall was at Category 5 intensity and the hurricane unleashed powerful winds and heavy rainfall, tearing off roofs, downing trees and decimating the communications and power grid across the island. In 2017, I donated $1500.00 to Friends of Virgin Islands National Park to help with their recovery efforts.
About the Virgin Islands National Park Poster
The Virgin Islands Poster measures 13″ x 19″ and is an original work by Robert Decker. The poster print is based on a photograph of a Hawksbill turtle by Caroline Rogers. Created in the style of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) of the 1930s and 1940s, the Virgin Islands poster is printed on “Conservation,” a 100% recycled, domestically produced (80 lb.) paper stock with soy-based inks. From start to finish, each National Park poster print is 100% American Made.
About the Artist
Photographer and graphic artist Rob Decker studied photography with Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park during the summer of 1979. The experience solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all our major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
"I feel that it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards. I’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits, so when you buy one of these original works, you're helping these trusts, conservancies and associations, too."
