About Us

Griffiths Island is a sanctuary for plants, birds and animals with a large breeding colony of short-tailed shearwaters.
Friends of Griffith Island (FOGI) focuses on protecting the ecology of Griffiths Island and supporting it as a major tourist attraction.

The Friends of Griffiths Island aims to protect and enhance the natural and cultural environment of Griffiths Island and its environs.

  • protect indigenous flora, fauna and migratory bird species with particular attention to the Short-tailed Shearwater nesting sites on the Island
  • protect Griffiths Island’s geological features
  • revegetate Griffiths Island with native flora (using endemic specie where possible)
  • control vermin and introduced wildlife predators (cats, dogs and foxes)
  • enhance the visitor experience by the provision of appropriate facilities with minimal reduction of the environmental value of the Island
  • utilise Griffiths Island and adjacent environments’ natural features as places of education for the community.
