Planning for Conservation

The Islands Trust Conservancy's work is guided by the Regional Conservation Plan (2018-2027), a science-based plan that identifies, prioritizes and plans for the protection of the best of the islands' natural spaces. We've created this plan to focus our efforts and resources on what's most urgently in need of protection.

Measuring progress is crucial to any plan. To see how we achieved our goals in the 2011-2017 Regional Conservation Plan, read the 2017 Regional Conservation Plan Update.
