Brooks Point, Pender Island
Right now, the Islands Trust Fund will match donations to their Opportunity Fund to protect the last piece of Brooks Point.
Brooks Point on South Pender Island, is a beautiful coastal headland with high wildlife values. In partnership with the Friends of Brooks Point, the Pender Island Conservancy, the Nature Conservancy of Canada, The Land Conservancy of BC and the Islands Trust Fund, HAT worked to raise the funds needed to purchase the first phase of Brooks Point.
Now, the Capital Regional District, Pender Island Conservancy and Islands Trust Fund are raising money to permanently protect a critical corridor that connects Brooks Point and Gowlland Point. In addition to connecting two important parks, the corridor is itself home to rare habitats and species, including the endangered Sharp-tailed Snake. Help protect this important piece of nature for future generations.
More about the Property
The southeastern tip of South Pender Island, a navigation beacon flashes on Gowland Point. A short walk along the eroded sandstone, to a flat promontory that juts like a chin into Boundary Pass. This is Brooks Point, named for the family who wanted to see it protected. Brooks Point provides some of the most spectacular vistas on the Gulf Islands - it is a great spot to view seabirds, killer whales, and other marine mammals. This coastal headland has an interesting mix of woodland, exposed headland, and rocky shoreline and is a much-loved recreation area for residents and visitors. It is home to many species of birds, plants, and invertebrates with diverse intertidal rocky shore marine life: at low tide, the sheltered beach also gives access to viewing rich marine fauna on the undersides of rock overhangs and ledges.
