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:

Help us protect KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest

Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, we are raising funds to purchase and permanently protect a 45 acre forested property on the edge of the Salish Sea. The KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest is located within the Coastal Douglas-fir (CDF) biogeoclimatic zone, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in Canada. It is also among the most threatened in Canada. Protecting these forests is an investment in our collective future.

We’ve just announced a donation matching campaign to support the purchase and permanent protection of KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest. Every dollar donated before December 31, 2022 will be matched by anonymous donors. This is a chance for you to double your impact!
