The Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Nature Atlas is an ongoing collaboration between the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and the Environmental Policy Institute (EPI) of Grenfell Campus, Memorial University. 

One of its goals was to encourage collaboration between interest groups, such as Indigenous organizations, students, professors, community members, land management experts and GIS professionals.

The website was initially designed to be a one-stop hub for the best available information on the biological and physical features of Labrador. 

The active mapping function of the NL Nature Atlas has been temporarily deactivated. NCC is currently working on a plan for northern conservation initiatives. Once this work is complete, the NL Nature Atlas will be relaunched.
 
You can still view static mapping information from this project by accessing the PDF volumes of the Labrador Nature Atlas:

If you have any questions about the NL Nature Atlas, or wish to make a specific data request, please contact nlnatureatlas@natureconservancy.ca.
