Formed in 1972, the mandate of the Catalina Island Conservancy is the
preservation and protection of the natural heritage of Santa Catalina Island, a
magnificent diversity of native plants, animals, and biotic communities.
At first, it sounds rather simple - that is until you realize that on these 42,000 acres of land with 50 miles of rugged shoreline, the Conservancy is responsible for biological communities found nowhere else in the world. There are numerous rare and endangered species, a treasure trove of historical and archeological sites, an airport, and over 100 miles of road to maintain.
Los Caballeros recommend that all who love to ride on Catalina Island, become a member of the Catalina Island Conservancy. This will allow the Island and its habitat to be maintained and cared for, and will help ensure that the Island can be enjoyed by future generations.
