Grizzly bear and cubs in British Columbia, Canada

What is it like to go on a “grizzly hunt” in the Great Bear Rainforest aboard Raincoast’s 70-foot research vessel the Achiever? This year, why not join us and find out.

Having now acquired three commercial hunting tenures in the Great Bear Rainforest that cover 30,000 km2, we need to conduct annual “hunts” within these areas. But the only trophies you’ll return with are fantastic memories and photos. We shoot only with cameras.

Your days will be spent hunting for grizzly bears in coastal estuaries and rainforest river valleys, while travelling through the region’s remote and magnificent landscapes. You’ll be guided by Raincoast’s crew and be introduced to our large carnivore conservation efforts in the Great Bear Rainforest. You will also visit Raincoast scientists who work in partnership with various First Nations communities, in whose territories we are guests.

All proceeds directly support our work to end the trophy hunting of bears and wolves on this magnificent coast. You can have the experience of a lifetime and leave knowing your visit will directly help protect the region’s namesake species – the grizzly bear.
