One Shot for Coastal Carnivores is a collection of photographs to help safeguard coastal carnivores

In support of our efforts, with Coastal First Nations, to permanently end commercial trophy hunting of all large carnivores on the coast of British Columbia, Raincoast curated a unique collection of art called One shot for Coastal Carnivores.

Each donated piece tells a story of the importance of protecting coastal carnivores. Large prints have been  auctioned online and exhibited in Vancouver, Victoria and Whistler. You can still purchase select prints in our online store with all the proceeds going towards our Safeguarding Coastal Carnivores Campaign.

We showed the One Shot for Coastal Carnivores exhibition at the Audain Art Museum and the Robert Bateman Centre in 2018.
