Alty Conservancy is located on the North Coast in the traditional territories of the Gitga'at and Gitxaala First Nations. The conservancy was created in 2007 and covers 8463 hectares.
Alty Conservancy protects Kiskosh Lagoon and Alty Lake – an area of high value for grizzly bear and bird habitat. This conservancy borders with K’Mooda/Lowe-Gamble Conservancy, K’waal Conservancy and Klewnugget Conservancy which together protects a network of inland lakes.
Alty Conservancy contains three remote pristine lakes, old-growth forests, several streams and wetlands. It has a diversity of wildlife habitats along with mountain scenery. Access into this wilderness area can be difficult and usually requires air transportation.
