Penrose-Ripon Conservancy is located on the Central Coast in the traditional territories of the Heiltsuk and Wui'kinuxv Nations. The conservancy was created in 2007 and covers 2,229 hectares.
This conservancy is a collection of islands on the north side of the entrance to Rivers Inlet. Penrose-Ripon Conservancy includes a southern section of Walbran Island and encompasses the remainder of Penrose Island that is not included in Penrose Island Marine Park.
The area is a popular boating and kayaking destination and some coves are listed as boat havens. Protection of cultural uses and values is a dominant purpose of this conservancy.
