SUPPORT CATALINA ISLAND
 
The Catalina Island Conservancy is working hard to keep the Island beautiful and accessible. We can’t do it without you and appreciate your contributions that make our work possible.

This year’s projects ranged from decidedly unglamorous to wildly innovative to scholarly.
Ongoing programs, like invasive plant removal and maintenance of over 200 miles of roads and trails, involves some backbreaking physical labor. Others, like an Island wide vegetation mapping project, involve university partner collaborations and the use of sophisticated drone and remote sensing technologies.

On the scholarly side, our plant program team in collaboration with the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, has been busy advancing research and reference publications - a Flora of Santa Catalina Island and associated Field Guide to the Plants of Catalina Island.  After more than 15 years of work, we anticipate publishing both next year. The Flora book will provide vital detailed information needed by scientists working on the Island. The Field Guide will have lots of high-quality photos and be a simpler reference tool for the casual outdoor enthusiast on Catalina.

And then there are those positively heartwarming efforts like monitoring our growing fox population. With more than 2,000 roaming across Catalina, this involves monitoring via chip tracking and telemetry collars, as well as annual trapping. Sometimes, like earlier this year, it also means nursing a lost pup back to health and reuniting it with its mother in the middle of the night! All are essential to keeping these sweet, endemic creatures healthy and thriving.

Please donate today to help sustain Conservancy projects like these, and more!
