Newfoundland and Labrador

As the only land trust organization in Newfoundland and Labrador, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has helped protect 5,600 hectares (over 13,800 acres) of some of the best wilderness in the province. NCC currently owns land in nine project areas across the island. These range from coastal sites that host the East Coast Trail on the Avalon Peninsula to the internationally renowned Grand Codroy Estuary, near Channel-Port aux Basques. In Labrador, NCC created the NL Nature Atlas, an inventory of Labrador’s natural environment to support others with their land use planning. This project is being expanded to include the island of Newfoundland.
