Little Whaleboat Island

Little Whaleboat Island is now protected forever! 

Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of donors, we have successfully completed the campaign to conserve Little Whaleboat Island.

Maine Coast Heritage Trust has closed on the acquisition of the islands (Little Whaleboat Island West, Nate, and Tuck), and we’re so excited to add these islands to our suite of existing Casco Bay island preserves.

We were blown away by the number of people and organizations that joined together to make this conservation effort a success—thank you!

We encourage you to learn more about preserves in Casco Bay already conserved and open to you. Or perhaps you’re interested in staying in loop about what’s going on in coastal conservation? Sign up to receive email updates from MCHT.

There’s more work to do, and you can be a part of it!

Were you inspired by the Little Whaleboat Island project? Well, MCHT is now working to conserve dozens more incredible places like Little Whaleboat Island up and down the coast.

Make a gift today to MCHT to support the effort to keep the coast open, healthy, working, and beautiful. We’ll put your donation right to work for the coast.

Thank you!
