The Nature Trust of BC is working to expand its newest conservation complex by purchasing 31.2 hectares (77.2 acres) of ecologically significant land on the southwest corner of Saturna Island. The Saturna Island – Mount Fisher Bluffs acquisition will protect rare species, conserve imperiled ecosystems, and increase connectivity between critically important wildlife habitats.
The Southern Gulf Islands chain is a retreat for many people seeking refuge in the quiet and natural wonders of the Islands. The sensitive coniferous forests of Saturna Island are also a haven for biodiversity and home to many federally and/or provincially listed species and ecosystems at risk in urgent need of conservation. The Nature Trust recently purchased Saturna Island – Money Creek, 58.1 hectares (143.5 acres) of sensitive land in close proximity to Mount Fisher Bluffs.
Thanks to your help, we’ve protected this landscape for future generations.
