The Land Conservancy of British Columbia (TLC) is pleased to announce the creation of a 6.67-hectare (16.49-acre) conservation covenant. Located on the southern portion of Cortes Island, the conservation area expands a known wildlife travel corridor that straddles the southern boundary of the property and continues a network of protected areas linking Hank’s Beach Forest Conservation Park in the west to Poison Cove in the east. Columbian Black-tailed Deer (Odocoileus hemionus columbianus), Gray Wolf (Canis lupus), and Cougar (Puma concolor) have been documented utilizing the corridor.
