More than two decades ago, Pacific Wild staff coined the name Great Bear Rainforest and embarked on an international campaign to bring attention to this endangered coastline and its iconic wildlife.

With only 30% of the rainforest currently protected, there are considerable gaps in habitat protection and wildlife management policies. Numerous large islands and intact salmon-producing river valleys remain unprotected and threatened by industrial-scale logging. Protected corridors between conservancies – essential requirements for far-ranging carnivores like grizzly bears and wolves – are largely absent from the current protected areas strategy, and trophy hunting of large carnivores is still allowed in most protected areas.
Pacific Wild continues to lead efforts to defend wildlife in the Great Bear Rainforest, from opposing government-sanctioned wolf killing to advocating for increased habitat protection for both marine and terrestrial wildlife.
