Setting land aside for preservation is truly a gift to present and future generations.  In the last 10 years development has doubled on Savary.  This makes preserving sensitive areas and green places in island neighbourhoods increasingly important.  We are very thankful for the visionary thinking of our donors and all who contribute to the preservation of the island.  Together we are making a difference.
