Penrose-Ripon Conservancy is a protected area on BC’s Central Coast.

Penrose-Ripon Conservancy

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.
