Hornby Island: Essential Info
Hornby Island is 2,990 hectares (7,388 acres) in area, with about 25% of the Island's land mass being preserved within provincial parks and regional nature parks. Hornby has a rich but vulnerable natural environment and is situated within a unique ecological region with exceptional biodiversity. As an Island with no natural lakes, Hornby has a strong dependency upon groundwater resulting in the need to protect the quality and quantity of this resource.
