Nova Scotia

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has been creating a natural legacy in Nova Scotia for more than 40 years. NCC's involvement in the province dates back to 1971, when we successfully protected more than 520 acres (210 hectares) at Sight Point in Cape Breton’s Mabou Highlands. NCC has worked with individuals and communities to protect more than 32,475 acres (13,142 hectares) in 43 projects across the province.

From strategic land securement initiatives, to restoring and protecting habitat and carrying out important stewardship and land management activities, together we are making a difference in all corners of picturesque Nova Scotia. From rural areas to Halifax County, we are diligently working to sustain the province's natural heritage for today and for our children and grandchildren.
