What you can do to Help

 The Past, Present and Future of the
 Santa Cruz Island Reserve

Founded more than four decades ago, the Santa Cruz Island Reserve has become an internationally valued site with an outstanding history of supporting research and teaching. The Reserve facilitates and supports scientists, teachers, students, and other visitors from around the world and provides them with accommodations and vehicles for transport throughout this amazing island and its diverse habitats.

Due to its success and the resulting saturated visitation, SCIR has outgrown University resources and is now increasingly dependent upon private support.

Today, increased funding is needed for staffing, operations and capital improvements. This will ensure SCIR's future managment as well as provide safe and adequate facilities for all visitors.

The Reserve's longevity depends on it!

If you are interested in making a gift to support these efforts you can click on the "Donate Today" icon at the bottom of this page. If you are interested in naming opportunities or receiving more information about involvement in the Campaign for Santa Cruz Island Reserve, please contact us at ;
