Prince Edward Island

As a result of the current impact of COVID-19, the Nature Conservancy of Canada urges you to postpone your trips to NCC conservation properties and trails until further notice.  Read more >

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has been working on Prince Edward Island since 1978. Since that time, we have helped protect close to 2,400 hectares (5,800 acres) of some of the most ecologically significant parts of the Island. PEI is Canada’s most densely populated province, and its remaining areas of intact dunes, salt marsh and Acadian forest are precious. NCC is proud to have helped our partners create 23 protected areas in the province. We also own and care for 10 other nature reserves on PEI. NCC’s nature reserves conserve some of the wildest landscapes on the island and are open for all to enjoy.
