2006 Success

Grantee:  Raincoast Conservation Society

Result: 4,400,000 acres protected

In February 2006, the government of British Columbia announced the creation of a 4.4-million-acre Great Bear Rainforest Provinical Park that protects key old-growth forests on mid-coast British Columbia. We made two grants to the Raincoast Conservation Society to support the group’s work to protect this spectacular landscape, which is home to grizzly, Kermode, and black bears, wolves, and important salmon runs. The new park is an important step in the ongoing effort to save the Great Bear Rainforest, though it leaves several key areas unprotected. Raincoast will continue its efforts to gain comprehensive protection for this singular landscape
