Raincoast to purchase Spirit Bear hunting territory

Last year, Raincoast began negotiations to acquire a very unique hunting territory – the primary place where spirit bears roam.  Despite a restriction on killing spirit bears, trophy hunting of black bears – that carry the recessive gene that causes the white coat – is allowed. Our purchase will help protect these rare bears and safeguard the genetically unique wolves we have studied for a decade.
