Newfoundland and Labrador
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has a rich history of helping conserve unique landscapes for future generations in Newfoundland and Labrador. NCC’s first land securement project in the province was in 1996 with the King George IV Ecological Reserve, a 4,693-acre (1,899-hectare) project to see timber and mineral rights relinquished. To date, NCC has protected 13,023 acres (5,270 hectares) in 28 land conservation projects across the province. These range from a coastal site that hosts the East Coast Trail in Maddox Cove to Lundrigan's Marsh in St. John's and a key wetland in the Town of Torbay on the East Coast. NCC has also been critical in developing and publishing a conservation blueprint for Labrador.
