The Raincoast Conservation Foundation has several art pieces on display at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney, BC until the end of summer 2014.  These original works were donated by BC artists to raise awareness about the threat of tar sands oil tankers moving through BC’s Great Bear Rainforest.  

The collection on display at the Mary Winspear Centre includes incredible paintings, carvings, and sculptures by Robert Bateman, Harold Allanson, Cheryl Samuel, Brent Cooke, and Craig Benson. All of the proceeds go to Raincoast’s oil-free coast campaign.

The book Canada’s Raincoast at Risk:  Art for an Oil-Free Coast  is also available for purchase at the box office.

Click on the links to see the pieces for sale.  NB: The auction is over, but you can still buy these unsold works by contacting the office at 250-655-1229 or e-mailing misty[at]

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!
