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 has curated a unique collection – One shot for Coastal Carnivores. Donated pieces will tell a story of the importance of protecting coastal carnivores. Pieces will be auctioned online and exhibited in Vancouver, Victoria and Whistler.
