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 12,865 acres (5,202 hectares) in 26 different 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. 

On the west coast of the island, NCC's presence is felt in many communities. Our nature reserves in the Grand Codroy Valley and Sandy Point Island are crucial for birds and waterfowl. The nearly 3,900-acre (1,580-hectare) jewel known as Grassy Place on the headwaters of Robinson's River protects habitat for Newfoundland marten and caribou. Not far from Deer Lake, NCC is helping protect the most northeastern range of rare black Aash trees in North America. Finally, NCC has been critical in leading the development of a conservation blueprint for Labrador.
