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 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 12,223 acres (4,946 hectares) across the province and is identifying key coastal areas to protect in the Avalon Peninsula along with sites in Sandy Point Island and near Deer Lake on the west coast. NCC is also leading the development of a conservation blueprint for Labrador.
