The Nature Trust of British Columbia is dedicated to conserving BC’s biological diversity through securement and management of ecologically significant lands.
British Columbia’s rich and diverse natural habitats are conserved for future generations
NTBC is a leading land conservation organization based in BC. They acquire ecologically significant land and care for this land in order to protect the natural diversity of wildlife and plants, and their critical habitats. NTBC is a non-advocacy group that seeks a balance between sustaining the environment and sustaining the economy. Collaboration is a hallmark of NTBC’s many years of working with local communities across the province. Since 1971, NTBC along with their partners has invested more than $100 million to secure over 71,000 hectares (175,000 acres) of land. NTBC has been active in the Kootenays for over 40 years and has conserved more than 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres) in the region for wildlife, fish and plants.
