The Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) first project in Quebec was the Heikalo (Île aux Moutons) property in 1978. The three-hectare (seven-acre) island is located east of Montreal. Since then, we have completed more than 300 projects on 45,000 hectares (more than 111,000 acres). We aim to protect Quebec’s most ecologically significant lands and waters. Thanks to this work, 200 at-risk plant and animal species have now protected habitats. NCC continues to work with our partners to protect and steward Quebec's natural heritage. We work in 15 priority natural areas across the province.
