Habitat Acquisition Trust
HAT works to protect land permanently. We do this in three ways:
  •  land acquisition through purchase or donation;
  •  conservation covenants;
  •  education & stewardship. 

HAT accepts donations of property, purchases land, and helps landowners establish permanent legal restrictions to protect natural habitats. HAT works in partnership with governments and other non-profit organizations to achieve our goals. We also work with communities, schools, and individual landowners to enhance habitat protection on private land - making everyone part of the solution!

HAT works in a spectacular part of Canada, in the south-west corner of British Columbia. Our mandate area centres around the Capital Regional District of British Columbia, and consists of southern Vancouver Island and the southern Gulf Islands. This is a special part of Canada where the warm, mild climate is home to species and habitats that cannot be found elsewhere in Canada - and some of these ecosystems and species are the most endangered in the country. A disproportionate number of BC's threatened and endangered species occur in the region, which also has a disproportionate amount of British Columbia's private lands.
