The UK-funded Darwin Initiative was a three-year programme that ran from November 1998 to February 2001. The primary focus was on species identification at Gorda Peak National Park on Virgin Gorda and a proposed protected area on Anegada, within the Ramsar site. Representatives from the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, Open University, England, Fauna and Flora International and the Smithsonian Institute, Washington, USA facilitated the workshops and offered technical support.

The main thrust was capacity building and training of staff in monitoring techniques and management planning, whilst adding to the biodiversity inventory for the BVI. This multi-agency programme increased the environmental awareness of the staff of several Government departments.

Three endangered and endemic species were identified on Anegada, including the Acacia anegadensis, Malphegia woodburyana and the Leptocereus quadricostatus. The National Parks Trust aims to map all biodiversity data acquired throughout this Programme, using GIS to ensure best management practices within the System of Parks and Protected Areas.
