Virgin Islands National Park is a US National Park in the United States Virgin Islands.

The park was established by Congress on September 22, 1956 to preserve the natural and cultural resources of St. John, St. Thomas, Water Island (formerly Hog Island), Buck Island Reef National Monument, and surrounding waters. The park is part of the Caribbean Islands National Parks System and includes four national monuments: Virgin Islands Coral Reef National Monument, Virgin Islands National Parks Marina Site, Fort George’s Historic Site and Botanical Garden on St Louis Bay (Saint Croix).

The management of these protected areas includes preservation or restoration work such as coral reef conservation efforts at Salt River Bay to protect endangered hawksbill turtles or wildlife surveys that help researchers identify endangered species like leatherback sea turtles which nest along shores throughout the islands.
