As of July 4, the campaign has already reached 75 per cent of its goal, according to Pacific Wild's website. The campaign goes until B.C. Day, Aug. 3.

"This is to ensure the rainforest I grew up with as a kid will still be there," Reynolds said in the video. "If you hated one of my movies, this is your opportunity for revenge, make me pay for it."
