Your Gift is vitally important to support the conservation of Maine’s coastal islands for wildlife and the restoration and management of seabird colonies.

Donations to Friends of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge help fund educational programs for children and adults at the Visitor Center, as well as outreach in the community on behalf of the Refuge.

The Future of Maine's Seabirds is in Your Hands!

Friends of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge is a community-based, non-profit conservation organization with 501(c)(3) tax status from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Would You Like To Volunteer?

We welcome volunteers, who play a vital role in helping us carry out our mission.

Volunteers share their talents in many ways, including working on maintenance projects for the Refuge, organizing events, serving on our committees, and providing educational outreach. Currently, our most pressing need for volunteers is staffing our Visitor Center in Rockland. As a small, community-based nonprofit, we rely on the generous support of volunteers.
