Raincoast Conservation Foundation is a not for profit team of conservationists and scientists empowered by our research to protect the lands, waters and wildlife of coastal British Columbia.
We use rigorous, peer-reviewed science and community engagement to further our conservation objectives. We call this approach ‘informed advocacy’. As an evidence based, conservation science organization (science ENGO), that operates a research lab, research field station and a research/sailing vessel, we are unique in Canada.
Our flagship projects focus on habitat and food supply needs of wolves, bears, killer whales and other marine animals. Salmon allocations for grizzlies and wildlife is central in our work.
To accomplish our goals, Raincoast partners and collaborates with numerous academic and research institutions, as well as First Nations, local communities and NGOs. Together with our partners, we also purchase commercial hunting rights to end the trophy hunting of bears and wolves and other carnivores.
Your support makes this it possible to protect wild salmon, coastal wildlife and ecosystems.
