The Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) first project in British Columbia was to help with the acquisition of Mud Bay in 1974 — a vibrant intertidal property in Vancouver's Boundary Bay. Since then, we have completed more than 100 projects that protect more than 820,000 hectares (2,000,000 acres) of the province's most ecologically significant land and water. Today, the BC Region continues to work with our partners to protect and steward British Columbia's natural heritage. This work is focussed in 11 priority natural areas across the province.
