In winter 2018 the Coastal Carnivores photography exhibit showed at the Karen Cooper Gallery (Vancouver), Robert Bateman Centre (Victoria) and the Audain Art Museum Whistler. Now the last piece – Rain Wolf by Cristina Mittermeier has sold – collectively the campaign raised over $30,000 that supported the purchase of the Nadeea hunting tenure and is now contributing to our purchase of the Kitlope tenure.
You can still get your own momento of this campaign with a limited edition photographic print, with options on our website available for only $98.
Once again we wish to thank the amazing photographers who contributed photography and their support to the exhibit – April Bencze, Tavish Campbell, Karen Cooper, Colleen Gara, Bertie Gregory, Melissa Groo, Brad Hill, John Marriott, Cristina Mittermeier, Neil Ever Osborne, Eric Sambol, and Andy Wright.
We are now busy raising the remaining funds to meet our $650,000 target for the Kitlope tenure. We’ll soon be updating you as to how close we are to that target and how much we need to raise before our purchase agreement deadline of December 31, 2020. Success means we can permanently extinguish commercial trophy hunting of coastal carnivores in the Kitlope.
