Island Nature Trust is dedicated to the protection of Natural Areas on Prince Edward Island
since 1979 for the benefit of Islanders and wildlife
A protected Island is:
A place where people and wildlife can thrive together
In protecting nature, we are also protecting ourselves.
Nature sustains our quality of life, but it needs a little help to keep giving and growing.
An ecologically diverse home that gives
We rely on natural areas for clean water, fresh air, healthy soils, and dense forests.
Their ecosystems absorb carbon and act as natural buffers against oncoming climate impacts, making them our best defence against climate change.
We protect our natural areas in perpetuity so you and your children can enjoy them for years to come.
The gift of nature to future generations is an epic tale you can be a part of.

An Island Home

Protecting Our Future
PEI’s population is growing and our rural landscapes are changing. Now more than ever there is a great need for Islanders to work together to protect the natural assets we love while ensuring we support a sustainable way of life for Islanders. Island Nature Trust invites you to join us in working to protect the Island’s natural spaces, both for our children and the diversity of wildlife that live here.
