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.”

You can help

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
