The Nature Trust of British Columbia

Animals, Environment


The Nature Trust of British Columbia is a leader in land conservation in BC. We acquire and care for BC’s most critical natural habitats for vulnerable wildlife, fish and plants.

BC is home to more biodiversity than any province or territory in Canada. Yet, 43% of the province’s assessed species have low or dwindling populations. Saving their habitat is the first step in protecting biodiversity for generations to come. Through a science-based approach, The Nature Trust identifies properties with high ecological values and uses the latest technology to understand and enhance these values through careful land management.

Our Impact

Since 1971, The Nature Trust of British Columbia has acquired more than 500 conservation properties. It is the oldest and largest land trust focusing solely on BC. After acquiring ecologically significant land, we restore and maintain the land for the protection of the biodiversity, wildlife, fish, and plants.

The Nature Trust has protected treasured places like the Salmon River with its abundance of fish, birds and elk on Vancouver Island, Boundary Bay on the flight path of hundreds of thousands of migrating birds in the Lower Mainland, the White Lake Basin, home to some of the most rare and at-risk species in the Okanagan, and the magnificent 10,000 acre Hoodoos property in the Kootenays.

These are some of the 178,000 acres (72,000 hectares) The Nature Trust of BC and partners have protected.
