"Wild Salmon are the backbone of our coast and they need our help!"

Salmon are Sacred is a non-profit organization which works to protect wild salmon and encourages salmon farming to operate in a sustainable manner, without negatively impacting the wild pacific salmon stocks that so many species, from whales to grizzly bears to trees and people, depend on.
The grand prize for the raffle fundraiser will be a space Kayaking Vancouver Island in western Johnstone Strait as part of the Johnstone Strait Expedition Tour (value $1495) donated by British Columbia-based Spirit of the West Adventures.
The Johnstone Strait Expedition tour is a 6-day kayaking and camping adventure in the world famous Johnstone Strait area. This tour explores the stunning bays and islands of the Broughton Archipelago, which is home to a variety of marine life and offers the chance to kayak with killer whales, humpback whales, minke whales, dolphins, porpoises, bears, eagles and much more. The tour was recently named on the National Geographic Ultimate Adventures Bucket List.
Those interested in helping wild salmon and trying their luck in the raffle can purchase tickets on-line through the Wild Coast website. All funds raised go to Salmon are Sacred.
