The North Island Marine Mammal Stewardship Association (NIMMSA) conducts conservation and business activities aimed at benefiting marine mammals, the economy and the marine environment off northern Vancouver Island. Our work ranges from policy development to supporting field-based conservation efforts and is possible due to revenue generated from association members.
The NIMMSA Conservation Fund has been set up to help ensure that marine conservation activities in the Vancouver Island North region can take place. It is generated through a $1.00/guest/day fee that is mandatory for all NIMMSA members to implement when operating guided tours within the NIMMSA area.
Applications for grants up to $12,000 CAD for projects that are not for profit, have conservation benefits to marine life off northern Vancouver Island, and occur anytime during a 17-month period after May 1st of each calendar year are welcomed.
