Why I support Raincoast

Supporter and volunteer Don Arney gives time to Raincoast

“I donate my flying time to take Raincoast’s Salmon Carnivore team to places where grizzlies roam but where the team’s boats and gum boots cannot take them. I make this contribution because I see in them a passionate group of scientists and conservationists who work hard on behalf of the bears, salmon and their rainforest home.”

Become a Raincoaster

Giving to Raincoast enables you to protect what you love most.

For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.

Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains. 

Biodiversity protection is the most important gift we can give the next generation. Join us as a Raincoaster today!
