News Release – purchase of trophy huting licenses Dec 2005
Vancouver, BC -based Raincoast Conservation Foundation, with the support of five coastal First Nations, has bought one of the largest trophy hunting licenses in North America in an unprecedented move to make conservation the primary objective in managing wildlife not sport or profit. No public funds were used for the purchase of the $1.35 million commercial license, which covers an area of more than 20,000 square kilometres of wildlife rich habitat, including grizzly bear, black bear and the rare white Spirit or Kermode bear, along with wolf, cougar and wolverine populations.

‘Buying the commercial trophy hunting rights is a major first step towards shutting down the carnivore trophy hunt on the coast of BC,’ said Ian McAllister, Conservation Director for Raincoast. ‘The next move is in the hands of the province.’

Happy holidays bears!
