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.
