The Aeolian Islands Preservation Foundation(AIPF) helps preserve the exceptional beauty and natural value of the archipelago, to encourage a more sustainable, and responsible tourism, promoting the unique experiences that the local habitat and natural phenomenon offer.
The AIPF is an initiative started in 2015 by friends of the Aeolian Islands, who want to give this fragile ecosystem the protection it deserves.
We raise money from people from all around the world who care about the future of the Aeolian Islands. We use funds raised to give out grants to local environmental and sustainable initiatives.
To address these social and environmental challenges, the AIPF has worked with partners and funded projects to protect the land and sea, commissioned studies to engage the community and promote change, and established alliances to strengthen local voices on critical issues.
We do this so future generations can also love, enjoy and prosper from the Aeolians pristine seas and marine species, fertile soils and landscape, unique biodiversity and exceptional, natural beauty. By preserving our islands’ natural beauty and resources, we contribute to the community’s well-being and prosperity.
