By participating in either the Catalina Island Conservancy Marathon or the Catalina Island Conservancy Half Marathon, you will also be supporting the work of the Catalina Island Conservancy, a non-profit conservation organization working to keep Catalina Wildlands wild.
Some exciting successes of the Conservancy in recent years include the leading-edge introduction of bison contraception to manage the iconic Catalina herd, the recovery of the Catalina Island Fox from near extinction, opening of the 37.2 mile Trans-Catalina Trail, and increasing the amount of youth served by education programs.
