Denis Tuzinovic, a Bosnian refugee, grew up in Chicago after immigrating to the US in 1996. He is now based in Seattle, WA and started volunteering for Raincoast in 2018. In his spare time Denis is an avid book reader, marathon runner, and enjoys hiking in the Pacific Northwest.
Denis enjoys the outdoors and is passionate about preserving our environment. Since 2016, he has served as an Environmental Coordinator for Patagonia where he is involved in local initiatives focused on the Southern Resident killer whales, sustainable farming, environmental waste cleanup, and fostering a diverse and inclusive community.
While on furlough from Patagonia, Denis supported nonprofits by organizing donations to a local food bank and going out with a team of marine biologists to help an injured elephant seal.
Denis is excited to be a part of the Raincoast team and to support our US operations. Are you a supporter of Raincoast that lives in the US? Now, you can support the Raincoast Conservation Foundation by selecting us as your chosen nonprofit on AmazonSmile.

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!
