Eat chocolate, save the bears and win a trip with Raincoast

You can help save the great bears.

Right now our research vessel Achiever is sailing along the coast of the Great Bear Rainforest, through coastal fjords, vast forests, and shorelines of one of the planet’s last great tracts of intact temperate coastal rainforest. Aboard, our guests hope to encounter coastal wolves, killer whales, grizzly bears, a huge diversity of marine birds, and other spectacular wildlife.

Now you have an opportunity to join them.

In partnership with Coastal First Nations, we are working to end the commercial trophy hunting of grizzlies throughout the Great Bear Rainforest. We are doing this by purchasing the commercial trophy hunting rights throughout the GBR and then shooting bears with only cameras. This is a strategy that works and we have already closed commercial trophy hunting in an area comprising over 30,000 square kilometers. To buy the remaining tenures we need your support.
