Moreton Island Protection Committee (MIPC) is an incorporated association established in 1978 with the aim of preserving the vegetation, fauna and natural features of Moreton Island. MIPC is a voluntary, non-profit organisation deriving its funds from membership fees, fund-raising and donations which are tax-deductible. The executive meets regularly to discuss and attend to general business and decision-making. Like Stradbroke and Fraser, Moreton is a sand island composed of a mass of sand retained by a rock outcrop (Cape Moreton). Moreton is 34 kms long and 10 kms at its widest point. In the mid-1990s the island was declared a national park finally revoking sand-mining leases which had existed since 1975.
