Appalachian Corridor (ACA) is a conservation organization dedicated to the protection of one of the last wilderness regions in southernmost Quebec. This natural corridor is located in the extension of the Appalachian range north of Vermont. It encompasses the Sutton Mountains massif and, within Quebec, extends all the way up to Mount Orford. Here, vast forests shelter hundreds of species of birds, and mammals such as the Lynx and the Black Bear, which depend on this corridor for their survival. Also found here are numerous species of vulnerable or threatened animals and plants, such as the Spring Salamander and Ginseng.

To protect this huge territory, local, regional and national conservation organizations have pooled their efforts in order to implement a trans-border conservation strategy based on an analysis of the region’s ecological characteristics.
