I, along with my team at @, are working with @n to permanently end commercial trophy hunting of all large carnivores on the coast of British Columbia. The Raincoast Conservation Foundation is raising $500,000 to acquire a commercial hunting licence covering 2,300 square kilometers in the heart of the British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest. Securing the Nadeea tenure will permanently end commercial trophy hunting of grizzlies, black bears (some of which carry the Spirit bear producing gene), wolves, cougars and wolverines in some of the region’s most spectacular watersheds.
The donated prints, of which this is one, will be exhibited at the Audain Art Museum, opening on December 8th, with full dates to come. Exhibitions will also be at the Karen Cooper Gallery, October 23 - 30, and The Robert Bateman Centre, November 22 - 30.
Photo: A lone rain wolf patiently awaits the dawn’s low tide. British Columbia’s coastal wolves are distinct, special, unlike any other wolf on this planet. Wolves have a strong emotional connection to their pack-mates and it has been shown that when a members of a pack dies, the other wolves mourn. The relationship between wolves and human has often been a tenuous one, with wolves bearing the brunt. These wolves are a critical link in the ecosystem that surrounds them.
