President’s Message: 2017

For over 25 years the Fishers Island Conservancy has witnessed extraordinary changes in environmental awareness and appreciation for nature’s diversity on our special island.

Tom Sargent

On this website we want to address past and present environmental concerns, as well as to invite all visitors and islanders to support our membership and our on-going programs.

Our mission has continued to evolve since we were founded in 1985. Our goal is to work in partnership with residents, businesses, non-profit organizations and the government to preserve, enrich and enhance the natural resources of Fishers Island and its surrounding waters. We help identify, advocate, educate and provide solutions to environmental problems that threaten these ecosystems while recognizing the recreational and practical needs of our inhabitants.

The continued success of these programs and our ability to meet future conservation concerns is made possible because of your interest and financial support. For this we are grateful and we thank you. We welcome your comments.

For the Conservancy,
Tom Sargent, President
