Mission Statement

We enhance island habitats through projects focused on island conservation, restoration and acquisition, as well as supporting research and public education which further these efforts.

Three quarters of all recorded animal extinctions since 1600 are of island species, even though island species make up only a small fraction of all species. One of the goals of the Foundation is to prevent these extinctions. To this end we support:

Although the Farallon Islands Foundation is based in California, our interests extend worldwide. Our primary interest and emphasis is on salt water islands. We are a 501(c)3 foundation, registered in the state of California, governed by an unpaid Board of Directors.
