Building a legacy
one traveller a time
Fire Island Eco Retreats manages the non-profit, Fire Island Conservation, a crusade that started with a tiny island in the Indian Ocean. Several years ago Ilha do Fogo, translated as “island of fire”, was bought, with a dream to build a 5-star resort. Upon visiting the island, the team discovered that it was ravaged by poachers and sadly, the endangered hawksbill and green turtles were the main victims of the poaching. The dream of a resort was quickly replaced by the need to protect these imperilled species, and thus, Fire Island Conservation was born.
