Habitat Acquisition Trust (HAT) is the regional land trust established by the Victoria Natural History Society in December of 1996. HAT was established to enhance the protection and stewardship of regionally significant lands on southern Vancouver Island and the southern Gulf Islands, in the southwest corner of British Columbia.

HAT’s mission is to conserve natural environments on southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, British Columbia, by preserving habitats and promoting stewardship. They do this in three main ways: acquisition of significant lands, conservation covenants (easements) and community projects aimed at environmental education and stewardship.
