The Pelican Island Preservation Society, Inc. is an environmental education organization with the following goals:
The acronym for Pelican Island Preservation Society, PIPS, is symbolic in many ways. A pip is defined as the initial break in an eggshell by a hatchling. When a pelican is ready to hatch, its first crack is called a pip. PIPS is also symbolic of the hatchling of a new concept dating from 1903, namely, to set aside lands as habitat where wildlife may breed and thrive.
