California Islands Research and Conservation Forum


For decades, the agencies and organizations of the California Islands have prioritized inter-island meetings, recognizing that we share common challenges, goals and solutions. Beginning with the California Island Symposium (1965-present), the Islands Research Collaborative (1990-2002), and the Island Fox Meetings (1998-present), we have convened semi-regular meetings to discuss current research and conservation strategy.

Acknowledging that improved communication will catalyze innovative research and conservation strategies, and that limited funding necessitates strategic solutions to our challenges, the California Islands Research and Conservation Forum was created to provide a “one-stop” shop for islands users to interface on the multitude of projects and proposals taking place on the Islands.
