In November, when Raincoast teamed up with the Pender Islands Conservancy to purchase 13-acres of Coastal Douglas Fir forest on S,DÁYES, North Pender Island, we were given 6-months to raise the required funds. Now, less than three months later, and thanks to your overwhelming generosity, we are only $4,018 away from reaching our goal!
In addition to generous support from the Aqueduct, McLean and Sitka Foundations, almost 40% of donations have come from individuals like you who recognize the importance of Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems and have been inspired to take action to protect them.
You have gotten us to within reach of our final fundraising goal. This is particularly appreciated given the difficulties many face from the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you have already donated, you can help by sharing this opportunity with a friend. Simply send them to our webpage where they can find information.
Whatever you are able to do, and for what you have already done, we are immensely grateful.
As a joint initiative, donors can choose to make contributions to the Pender Islands Conservancy or Raincoast. We hope our next email can be the one that celebrates protection of the S,DÁYES Flycatcher Forest.

Become a Raincoaster
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!
