Our Beginnings

In 2003 a group of interested islanders sought to identify priority areas on Mayne Island wherein conservation tools might, by invitation, be applied. They cultivated relationships with landholders in such areas, in order to build awareness of the existing ecological values and offer walkabouts and other conservation-oriented resources, while building the case over time for the application of conservation tools. The group offered general education and hands-on experiences for Mayne Island residents and visitors related to preserving the ecological integrity of the island for future generations.

These actions addressed the core intent of what has become the Mayne Island Conservancy Society.

Our Mission
