A strategy with a proven track record

We have acquired the commercial trophy hunting rights in approximately 30,000 square kilometres of BC’s Great Bear Rainforest. Our ultimate goal is to control all commercial trophy hunting tenures on the BC coast. We now stand poised to complete the job.

Working with Coastal First Nations

Your support will help Raincoast and our Coastal First Nations partners  end commercial trophy hunting in their territories.

Buying hunting tenures, a permanent fix

As the only permanent solution to stopping the commercial trophy hunt appeared to be buying out hunting licenses, we began purchasing hunting rights in 2005. With your help we have given protection to bears from trophy hunting in three jurisdictions in the Great Bear Rainforest. Now we can secure a fourth tenure.

Help us finish the job

First Nations partners

Raincoast and our First Nation partners currently control three commercial hunting tenures in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest. Our goal is to purchase all remaining territories and, with our First Nation partners, end the trophy hunting of bears, wolves and large carnivores throughout this coastal region.

Purchasing these tenures is one small part of the process of respecting the autonomy of First Nations communities in the Great Bear Rainforest.
