Safeguard Coastal Carnivores with Patagonia Vancouver, August 9

Join us on Thursday, August 9th, for an evening with Patagonia Vancouver and Brian Falconer.

The Raincoast Conservation Foundation and Coastal First Nations are working together to help end the trophy hunting of all large carnivores in the Great Bear Rainforest. We have already acquired the trophy hunting rights in approximately 30,000 square kilometres of BC’s Great Bear Rainforest, permanently ending commercial trophy hunting of grizzlies, black bears (some of which carry the Spirit bear producing gene), wolves, cougars and wolverines in some of the region’s most spectacular watersheds. We now have the opportunity to add another 2,350 square kilometres to wildlife protection in the region with the purchase of a fourth commercial trophy hunting licence, the Nadeea tenure.

Purchasing the remaining commercial tenures in the Great Bear Rainforest, coupled with the province’s ban on the grizzly hunt, is a significant step towards our goal of permanently ending the trophy hunting of all coastal carnivores. Our goal is to raise $500,000 by December 31, 2018 and we are nearly halfway there!

We are hosting a fundraiser event at the Patagonia store in Vancouver on August 9, 2018 and would love to see you there. You can help be a part of this bold initiative by donating and helping us reach our goal to stop the hunt forever.

Safeguard Coastal Carnivores with Patagonia and Raincoast

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.
