Thank you for joining our Kitlope webinar

Cecil’s concept of the magic canoe, in which there is room for everyone to pull is the same direction, is a beautiful metaphor and apt for our challenge with the Kitlope tenure.

Thank you for joining our Kitlope webinar last week. We were thrilled to have you join us and enjoyed taking you on a virtual trip to the Kitlope.

We’ve published the webinar video to our Youtube channel in case you want to watch it again or share it with a friend or network. The campaign video we played at the beginning of the webinar is also online if you want to watch it again.

One of our greatest achievements at Raincoast has been our role in ending the trophy hunting of grizzly bears throughout British Columbia. Acquiring the remaining commercial hunting tenures in the Great Bear Rainforest extends similar protection to all coastal carnivores in the Kitlope, a wish of Cecil Paul’s, a hereditary chief of the Xenaksiala Nation.

We now have until December 2020 to raise the remaining purchase price and take a step closer to safeguarding all coastal carnivores and realizing Cecil’s dream. We are currently at $305,000 – with some gifts on the way following the webinar. Thank you.

Please do consider sharing the campaign video, website or other details with others that you think might belong in this canoe.

To celebrate the end of the year, we are so happy to be able to offer matching campaigns on two of our most pressing fundraising initiatives.

All donations to both the Southern Great Bear Rainforest tenure acquisition and our KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest initiative, will be matched until the end of the year. This is a great opportunity for our supporters, like you, to make your impact go twice as far, while benefiting from tax deductions.

Help us secure KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest on S,DÁYES (Pender Island). Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, Raincoast is raising $2.18 million to purchase a 45 acre coastal property on the edge of the Salish Sea.

Safeguarding Coastal Carnivores in the Southern Great Bear Rainforest tenure. We are currently raising funds to stop commercial trophy hunting in more than a quarter of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia.
