Interested in helping Raincoast purchase another Commercial Hunting Territory and put an end to trophy hunting?
Giving a donation of $20,000 or more to Raincoast’s campaign to end the grizzly bear trophy hunt in British Columbia will not only get you a tax donation and our gratitude, but your donation could get you a one of kind painting. Kristine Paton, a Raincoast supporter and bear lover, will gift to you this quintessential original Jimmy Wright painting Ursa Major from her private collection (appraised at a value of between $25,000 and $30,000).
For more information on Kristine Paton’s initiative, please visit her website and blog.

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!
