Carnivore conservation solutions in coastal BC

Carnivore conservation solutions in the land of the Spirit bear.

Kitasoo/ Xai’xais Territory in the Great Bear Rainforest is a stronghold for Grizzly bears and wolves. It’s at the heart of where Spirit bears roam.

Join Raincoast, the Spirit Bear Foundation, the Society of Geography Students, and Patagonia for a glimpse into the community driven cutting edge science and advocacy that safeguards these culturally, economically, and ecologically important animals.

Tickets for these events are free – but seating is limited so book early using the links below:

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!
