The Nature Trust of BC’s mandate is to:
- Acquire habitats of high biodiversity values and at greatest risk of being lost; and
- Manage conservation lands as part of landscapes to ensure ecosystem resilience and connectivity.
Approximately 6% of the land base in British Columbia is privately owned. However as illustrated through the findings in Taking Nature’s Pulse: The Status of Biodiversity in British Columbia there is a disproportionate number of species and ecosystems at risk in the low elevation areas like valley bottoms and coastal lowlands where most of the private land is located.
This is where The Nature Trust plays a significant role to acquire and manage private land for conservation. The most effective way this is done is through partnerships with other conservation organizations and various levels of government to try and put together land assemblages to secure functioning ecosystems and ecological processes.
