Save the Great Bears: #GrizzlyBar #SaveTheGreatBars

Coastal First Nations logo iconSave the Great Bears, logo (smaller) Meet the Grizzly Bar

The geniuses at Denman Island Chocolate gave us a big boost this summer. They made a very special chocolate bar: the Grizzly Bar. And they donated a trip to the rainforest as part of an amazing contest. The contest is over. Thank you to everyone who has participated!

But keep your eyes open for the Grizzly Bar, there’s still a few around.

Contest to win a trip is closed

The contest is over, but proceeds from your purchase of the Grizzly Bar will continue to go toward our purchase of the commercial trophy hunting tenures in the lands of Coastal First Nations, in the Great Bear Rainforest.

Supporters of our Save the Great Bear campaign have been entered to win a trip. There were two ways to have your name entered into a draw:

  1. Donate before July 1 (Donate now!!), OR
  2. Share a photo of you with your Denman Island Chocolate Grizzly Bar on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, with the hashtag #GrizzlyBar, and tag Raincoast.

Once-in-a-lifetime-trip details

Denman Island Chocolate’s donation of a free trip to the winner of this campaign contest means that someone can have the opportunity to visit the Great Bear Rainforest. The winner will be joining us aboard the Achiever for an unforgettable journey.
