Donate and help us save the great bears
Your donation can help us buy commercial trophy hunting tenures, and stop the hunt forever. Thank you to everyone who has donated before July 1st; your name has been entered into the draw for a trip in the Great Bear Rainforest, courtesy of Denman Island Chocolate.
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.
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.
