Prince Edward Island
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has protected 26 ecologically significant natural areas on Prince Edward Island, with a focus on conserving coastal and forest ecosystems. PEI is Canada’s most densely-populated province, and its remaining areas of intact dunes, salt marshes and Acadian forest are precious. With 90 per cent of PEI under private ownership, NCC relies on generous land donors to support our conservation projects. Some of the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s larger projects on PEI include the Conway and Cascumpec Sandhills on the North Shore, Percival River in southwest PEI and Holman’s Island near Summerside. Working with partners, NCC has helped to protect 2344 hectares (5792 acres) on the Island.
