Address for Carlos Tesitor?

Dear Mr. Tesitor —

Congratulations on your recent naming to the Board of the Virgin Islands Territorial Park System. Judith Towle, the founding Vice-President of Island Resources Foundation, reminded me of the attached (and linked in Judith’s note below) paper (“HISTORY OF PROTECTED AREA INITIATIVES
in the u.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS”) by her late husband and founding IRF president, Dr. Edward L Towle, about prior protected area initiatves in the USVi.

Best wishes

Bruce Potter

Bruce,
I was hoping for Carlos Tesitor’s email address in order to forward this link to Ed Towle’s 2003 paper documenting the history of protected area initiatives in the USVI since the 1940s. If you identify his contact info, please forward the link. It’s an opportunity to remind the members of the newly constituted Park System Trust Fund Board of what came before – and to re-introduce IRF and the potential Fish Bay donation to the Trust for Virgin Islands Lands.

Becoming Fan of Small Portion Pre-Cooked Rice

Several brands with various spice packages. Pretty expensive, but 90 seconds to table, easy to mix with other stuff.

Australia: population 26 million, 6,700 covid deaths. (And, before you say that Australia is rural or bigger, most of those 26 million live in the 6-7 largest metro areas.)
