Welcome to MINA

MINA: A nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of the diverse natural resources of the Northern Mariana Islands.


Hafa Adai, Tirow, and Welcome to the Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance

MINA is a community - based, nonprofit organization that was formed by a group of people whose dedication and compassion for the environment felt the need to promote and advocate for the protection and restoration of our natural resources in the Northern Mariana Islands.

The CNMI has a unique and beautiful natural heritage but these natural treasures are at risk of continued degradation. MINA believes that by fostering community watch and outreach efforts we can achieve our long-term goals for a sustainable future.
