The perfect holiday gift that supports efforts to protect BC’s wolves

We’ve partnered with Ecologyst clothing to make a responsible holiday gift.

This year the death of Takaya has spurred Raincoast to reassess our own efforts to protect the lives, habitat and welfare of all of BC’s wolves.

With the covid-19 pandemic changing our world this year, we also think it’s especially important to support local businesses this holiday season. That’s why we have partnered with Ecologyst, a local company based in Victoria, B.C. (Lekwungen territory) and an incredibly talented Tsleil-Waututh artist, Ocean Hyland, to make these exclusive 1200 Wolf Tee Shirts

This is one way you can purchase responsible gifts during the holiday season (you can also celebrate local wildlife with a limited edition photography print from a range of wildlife photographers). A portion of the T-shirt sale proceeds will go directly towards our wolf campaign; we are seeking to put an end to the recreational killing of wolves, which sees more than 1200 wolves killed annually.

The wolf remains misunderstood and with support from Ecologyst and others, like Sealegacy, you can expect to see further efforts from Raincoast in 2021 to redefine how we coexist with wolves.

The tee shirts are organic, made in Vancouver and printed in Victoria, with only 250 available!

Help us protect KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest

Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, we are raising funds to purchase and permanently protect a 45 acre forested property on the edge of the Salish Sea. The KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest is located within the Coastal Douglas-fir (CDF) biogeoclimatic zone, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in Canada. It is also among the most threatened in Canada. Protecting these forests is an investment in our collective future.

We’ve just announced a donation matching campaign to support the purchase and permanent protection of KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest. Every dollar donated before December 31, 2022 will be matched by anonymous donors. This is a chance for you to double your impact!
