Protecting bears by buying hunting rights

Raincoast has a purchase agreement for its second commercial hunting territory in the Great Bear Rainforest, specifically in the home of the spirit bear.  This purchase will expand our existing hunting territory by 3500 sq km and bring an end to commercial hunting of bears, wolves and other carnivores in almost 30,000 sq km of the BC coast.  As of May 2011 have raised almost $300,000.  We have $75,000 to go to reach our goal by July 15 2011.
