Conservation Convenants

Are you interested in protecting a special ecological feature, sensitive ecosystem or native species on your property?


A conservation covenant is a formal legal commitment to protect your land for nature that still allows you to own your property, live on your property, and sell it whenever you want. The power of a conservation covenant is that it binds future owners to the same promises you made, meaning the landscape you’ve loved and cared for remains protected forever.


ThINC assists Thetis Island property owners to create conservation covenants on their land by helping them access programs such as the Island Trust Conservancy's Conservation Covenant Program and the Natural Areas Protection Tax Exemption Program (NAPTEP). For more information please refer to the Islands Trust here or get in touch with us at
