Why 2020 was not all bad…

As we enter the new year, I am truly excited by our focus and commitment.

As a challenging 2020 comes to an end, it is time to reflect back on the past year and to look forward to what 2021 holds for Raincoast.

Our annual report Tracking Raincoast looks exceptional; reading through the contents it is humbling to consider all we have achieved in 2020. As we enter the new year, I am truly excited about our focus and commitment to build on that success, as well as the prospect of all we intend to accomplish going forward.

I am also pleased to share this short video that will give you a sense of just some of our accomplishments over the past twelve months. 

Before 2020 closes, please accept my sincere thanks and gratitude for your support, which has enabled our progress. Last, I also ask that you please consider an end of year gift to help ensure we can continue to produce tangible conservation successes throughout 2021.

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!
