Working with our First Nations partners, our goal is to permanently end commercial trophy hunting of all large carnivores in the Great Bear Rainforest.

Help us take the next step and secure the 5300 km2 Kitlope tenure

We have now raised the $100,000 deposit for a fifth commercial hunting licence covering the iconic Kitlope Conservancy and surrounding area. Acquiring this tenure allows us to permanently end commercial trophy hunting of grizzlies, black bears, wolves, cougars and wolverines in one of British Columbia’s most revered watersheds.

A strategy with a proven track record

We have now acquired the commercial trophy hunting rights in approximately 33,500 square kilometres of BC’s Great Bear Rainforest. We extinguish guided hunting when we purchase the tenures. Our ultimate goal is to secure the rights to all commercial trophy hunting tenures on the BC coast. We now stand poised to complete the job.

Buying hunting territories, 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 carnivores from trophy hunting in three jurisdictions in the Great Bear Rainforest.
