Overview

The Marshall Islands Conservation Society was incorporated on 16 November 2004. Our organization’s vision is People and Nature in Harmony wherein the Marshallese people come to a new equilibrium with nature, based on a combination of traditional resource management practices (e.g. m̗o) and scientific assessments and insights for protection and management of target features, species and locations.

The MICS is dedicated to building awareness, support and capacity for sustainable use of resources, conservation and protection of biodiversity through the Reimaanlok process and Micronesia Challenge commitment.
