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.

Whether you win the trip or not, you will have contributed to a campaign of international significance. Your support directly saves the lives of grizzly bears.

For the bears.


You can help

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
