April conservation expedition with Raincoast’s Dr. Paul Paquet

See the Salish Sea with Raincoast’s Senior Scientist.

This April we are partnering with Bluewater Adventures for a unique trip through the Canadian Gulf Islands and the Salish Sea, which will feature Raincoast’s Dr. Paul Paquet as the guest Naturalist.

As Raincoast’s Senior Scientist, and a world renowned large carnivore expert, Paul’s input is key to guiding our research and conservation programs in both the Great Bear Rainforest and the Salish Sea. Paul will provide insight into key conservation issues on BC’s coast including the recovery of endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales and the health of the Salish Sea. At the same time you’ll keep watch for migrating sea birds, humpback whales, and for Bigg’s killer whales (marine mammal-eating). This adventure will include hikes in coastal forests, the chance to explore by kayak and to simply enjoy the beauty of BC’s south coast. Each booking directly supports our conservation efforts.

April 23 – 27, 2019

Spring and fall in the Great Bear Rainforest aboard Raincoast’s Achiever

Our dedicated research vessel, Achiever, allows us to visit remote estuaries, coastal fjords and the communities with whom we partner.

These trips allow us to provide a glimpse of what coastal carnivore conservation looks like on the ground for the wolves, grizzly bears and black bears that we work to protect. You’ll visit places in which we have ended commercial trophy hunting, with all proceeds going to support permanent safeguarding of coastal carnivores.

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!
