About ATLANTIC CANADA CONSERVATION DATA CENTRE/CENTRE DE DONNEES S
The Conservation Data Centre concept and methods were introduced by The Nature Conservancy in the early 1970s. The Atlantic CDC became a registered charity in 2000. The Atlantic CDC is located on the Mount Allison University Campus in Sackville, New Brunswick, and has a satellite office in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. We are a non-advocacy group that maintains the data and expertise required to make sustainable management decisions related to plant and animal species and ecological communities of conservation concern in Atlantic Canada. The CDC’s data and expertise are critical to organizations attempting to ensure that species and ecological communities are protected, e.g., those acquiring land to ensure protection.
