Nature Conservancy preserve
Goose Island was once filled with animals from around the world brought to the island for sport hunting. Since 1975 it has been managed as a nature preserve by The Nature Conservancy, following the Management Plan and Baseline Study for Goose and Deadman Island Preserves, along with Deadman Island. Visiting the island is prohibited, except for researchers from the University of Washington's Friday Harbor Laboratories.
