Our Publications

We hope these publications help you discover more about conservation and stewardship in the islands and how you can become involved.

When perusing our publications, please note that on May 31, 2018, the former Islands Trust Fund and Trust Fund Board legally became the Islands Trust Conservancy through a requested amendment to the Islands Trust Act to change our name. We believe the new name, Islands Trust Conservancy,  better reflects the work that we do to protect sensitive ecosystems in the region. Transitional provisions ensure the legal continuity of the Trust Fund Board in all management plans, publications and charitable gifts. Moving forward, all of our publications will reflect the name change.
