Quebec

The Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) first project in Quebec was the acquisition of the Heikalo (Île aux Moutons) property in 1978, a seven-acre (three-hectare) island located to the east of the island of Montreal. Since then we have completed more than 300 projects that protect more than 98,800 acres (40,000 hectares) of this province's most ecologically significant land and water, and 200 plant and animal species at risk now have protected habitats. Today, the Quebec Region continues to work with our partners to protect and steward Quebec's natural heritage in 15 priority natural areas across the province.
