Island Conservation

Mission Statement

Island Conservation (IC) is our world’s only international nonprofit conservation organization dedicated solely to preventing extinctions on islands through community-based island restoration and rewilding partnerships. IC was founded in 1994 and is headquartered in Santa Cruz, CA with field offices in Chile, Ecuador, Hawaii, New Zealand, Palau, and Puerto Rico. IC is a United States 501(c)3 charitable organization that works globally, with strategic international and local partnerships wherever they work to help achieve shared conservation goals. To date, IC has completed hundreds of island restoration interventions to protect thousands of populations of threatened wildlife and plant species. Island Conservation’s work combines efforts to remove invasive species, reintroduce native species, support marine ecosystems, improve community livelihoods, and empower local partners to support overall sustainable development. Island Conservation is committed to combating the biodiversity, climate, and ocean crises by increasing the pace and scale of island restorations worldwide.

Why Donate Crypto to Island Conservation?

Humanity is at a crossroads. Without, immediate conservation interventions at a global scale, our planet faces potentially insurmountable threats to ecosystems upon which our social, economical, and ecological diversity and stability depends. Islands are biodiversity hotspots, hosting 20% of the earth’s biodiversity. Islands intimately connect land and sea and are important early indicators of the threats facing our global community. Unfortunately, islands are also extinction epicenters, experiencing the greatest frequency of reported extinctions. In fact, 75% of all reptile, bird, amphibian, and mammal extinctions combined have occurred on islands. The good news is that restoring island ecosystems has been proven to be one of the most effective conservation tools available to us today, and Island Conservation has more than 25 years of experience preventing extinctions through targeted island restorations.

Save on your Taxes by Donating Crypto

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!

There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.

If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
