About Island Conservation Society
Island Conservation Society promotes the conservation and restoration of island ecosystems of Seychelles, the sustainable development of islands, and awareness of their vulnerability and vital importance to the planet's biodiversity. Founded in 2001, ICS today runs conservation centres at five islands across Seychelles, with more planned for the future when funding permits.
In late 2000, a small group of committed individuals come together to create the first conservation body dedicated to working in the outer islands of Seychelles. In April 2001, Island Conservation Society was legally declared as an NGO.
Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees of ICS is drawn from some of the leading conservationists of Seychelles in partnership with some of the nation’s leading professionals in a variety of fields. A smaller Council group is responsible for overseeing strategy.
Honorary members are individuals based overseas, selected by the Board of Trustees for having excelled in international conservation. They are consulted for their expertise and are invited to participate in the AGM of ICS.
Conservation programmes involving teams in the islands are coordinated by a staff of full-time professionals based at the Head Office on Seychelles' main island of Mahe. A Conservation Centre is found on each island led by a Conservation Officer with support staff.
