Help us to consign the trophy hunt to history

Donate now and enter to win a once in a lifetime trip.

Is today the last day to win a trip with Raincoast?

Yes. Today is your last chance to win a unique ten day adventure with Raincoast. Aboard our research vessel, Achiever, you’ll visit the estuaries and watersheds where bears roam, guided by Raincoast experts. Your name needs to be in the hat today with around 300 others for a chance to win. So, before you pack the cooler, grab your Denman Island Chocolate Grizzly Bar and enter for your chance to win.

Is today the last day to Save the Great Bears?

No. While the competition to win the Great Bear Rainforest trip closes today, our efforts to end the trophy hunt continue. All proceeds from this campaign will directly support our acquisition of commercial hunting tenures in the territories of our Coastal First Nations partners who have called for an end to the trophy hunting of bears in their traditional territories under tribal law. As Canada celebrates 150 years of history we’re reminded that this coast has a much longer story, and that story includes co-existence with bears.

It’s the last day to enter to win a ten day trip.

However you celebrate this long weekend and Canada Day, please consider a donation that will directly help us to consign the trophy hunt to history in the grizzlies’ namesake Great Bear Rainforest. This will be a conservation success of international stature and one we can all celebrate for the next 150 years and beyond.

The natural history of BC’s coast includes bears. Let’s keep it that way.

I hope you will donate now and enter to win a once in a lifetime trip.

Donate and Safeguard Coastal Carnivores

Become a Raincoaster

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!
