About This ConservancyOuter Central Coast Islands Conservancy was established as part of government’s land use decision for the Central Coast planning area. Adjacent to Hakai Luxvbalis Conservancy and located west of Bella Bella, this conservancy protects an archipelago of outer coast islands with an intricate exposed marine-shoreline interface.
The area receives high use as a sea kayak route from Raymond Passage to Goose Island. This conservancy is rich in marine life with important sea otter concentrations in the McMullen Group. Protection of cultural uses and values is a dominant purpose of this conservancy.
