Mahone Islands Conservation Association100% of our funds are
channelled towards our Mission.


“To protect and conserve the natural environment of the islands and shoreline of Mahone Bay,
and the traditional, social and recreational opportunities valued by its various communities.”


MICA has faced a list of evolving challenges over the years. From the privatization and development of the islands to our current challenge of private moorings.

We are very fortunate to have these prime islands and island properties. MICA has the stewardship responsibility for this wonderful resource.
