Art auction ends tonight!

Many of the extraordinary original art pieces undertaken by acclaimed BC wildlife and First Nations artists as part of Art for an oil free coast will be sold by tomorrow night. This collection includes works by Robert Bateman, Mark Hobson, Craig Benson, Roy Henry Vickers, Robert Davidson, Carol Evans, Carl Chaplin, Mae Moore and many other extraordinary artists.

In total there are 58 works of art in the auction, almost all of which are originals. These remarkable pieces that include paintings, sculptures and carvings, have been donated by the artists to Raincoast in an effort to stop Enbridge’s Northern Gateway oil tanker proposal. All the art is being sold by auction with 100% of the proceeds going to our Oil-Free Coast campaign.

The art is also on tour to build awareness around the unacceptable risks of oil tankers on the BC coast.

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.
