We met up today to draw the name of the lucky winner of our Save the Great Bears draw! Terry reached out to the winner today and we’re hoping to hear back soon. We should be able to announce their name next week.
In the meantime, we wanted to say good luck to everyone. And also, we can’t thank you all enough for your smiles and energy and donations.
We appreciate you. And we love seeing your love for the Great Bear Rainforest. We see you. Thank you for joining with us. No matter what individual wins this trip, graciously donated by Daniel Terry, founder of Denman Island Chocolate, I think it’s fair to say that bears will win.
That feels good to write. Bears will win.
Seeing the photos and donations and caring pour in has also shown me that our communities are made better by your support for this campaign.
How can we not see this joy for chocolate and bears and not feel inspired?
Terry told us that he’s seeing this too, “People are so engaged with this campaign. I’m still getting requests from retailers and people are really behind this. We’ve sold close to 20000 bars in the last three months, and people are asking me about the bar all of the time. People want to help. People want to save bears.”

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!
