Is there someone on your holiday list who has everything?
Why not give them something lasting and meaningful: a gift in their name, to help conserve the beautiful shores of Mayne Island.
Here’s How It Works
Make a donation for healthy shores on Mayne Island in the name of someone on your holiday list. We will immediately email a beautiful e-card to that person, including your name and your personalized message to them. It looks like this:
Here are just a few things your donation can do:
Shoreline Education Programs
Help fund exciting public programming of guest speakers, films, workshops on topics such as ethical harvesting of nearshore edibles; marine ecosystems of the Salish Sea: the effects of beach detritus on marine life; interpretive shoreline walks; shorebird identification and behaviours.
Anchor Out Program
Help us expand our existing “Anchor Out” programme to educate boaters about the destructive effects of anchoring in sensitive eelgrass beds that are so important for Mayne Island’s marine health
Support us as we expand our annual shoreline cleanup to include a post-summer cleanup, highlighting a marine plastics awareness programme for residents and visitors.
Reaching School Children
Your donation will help us develop a programme that provides opportunities for Mayne Island and off-island school groups and others to experience and learn about the care and conservation of shoreline ecosystems
