Title: Carnivore-Visitor Use Patterns within the Long Beach Unit of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve on the West Coast of Vancouver Island

Year: 2005

Author(s): Danielle Edwards

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
There has been a noted increase in wolf-human and cougar-human encounters in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and adjacent areas in recent years. This has included increased wolf activity within the Long Beach and Broken Group Islands sections of the park and adjacent areas. Cougar activity has been sporadic with activity peaks occurring when one or more animals are frequenting an area. The question that this presents is what is causing this increase? The larger PRNPR carnivore project is seeking to answer these questions through a number of projects. The purpose of this section of the project is to update the wildlife and visitor databases, document the data and look for correlations between wildlife encounters and visitor numbers. The number of visitors to the West Coast Trail and Broken Group Islands unit of the parks has been relatively stable over the last 10 years. The number of visitors passing through the Long Beach Unit has seen a steady increase in traffic, with most traffic during July and August each year and annual visitation peaking at over 750,000 visitors to the Long Beach Unit in 2003. Activity in Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds outside of the park units has not been consistently documented. Visitors who travel to the region by boat are largely unrecorded with no recent data on boat traffic available. Based on the recorded wildlife observations in the region and visitor data, both the number of wolf and cougar observations and encounters have been increasing as have the number of visitors. Whether or not there is a causative relationship can not be determined with the available data. The increased number of visitors coupled with improved wildlife encounter recording likely accounts for some of the observed correlation. Aggressive wolf activity is known to have increased in recent years separate from improvements in reporting and visitor numbers and can be strongly tied to feeding and intentional habituation of wolves both within and outside of the park.

Title: Legacies at Long Beach

Year: 2005

Author(s): Emily Davis

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
The Canadian Model Forest Program began with the establishment of ten sites across the country in 1992 as part of the Green Plan for a Healthy Environment. With federal funding and direction, these were expected to mediate among stakeholders, demonstrate best practices, and provide a forum for exchange of "cutting edge" science and technology. My thesis surveys these policies through a focus on the Long Beach Model Forest in Clayoquot Sound, disbanded in 2002 and considered a failure. I examine how a certain application of what sustainable development meant federally interacted with the localized politics of places like Clayoquot. This meaning was shaped largely by Canada's efforts to present itself as a "model forest nation" in international environmental governance institutions such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Forests. Through textual analysis of Model Forest Program documentation at the local, provincial, and federal levels, and forest-oriented political economy, I conclude that large bureaucratic projects deploying "sustainability" at this time did indicate new ways in which the forest was known and ordered through techniques of governance, mapping, and ecosystem management. However, for communities on the front lines of the "war in the woods," these types of efforts often amounted to symbolic politics. The federal government continued to perform a neutral advocacy role and reinforce visions of objectivity within the bounded space of a model forest, even with regards to the social demands of sustainability. Rather than providing a simple narrative of failure in Long Beach, I emphasize the complexity and contingency inherent to its multstakeholder decision-making processes, especially the often-productive relations between members of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation and non-aboriginal communities in Clayoquot Sound.

Biosphere reserves are regions that are internationally recognized for their ecological significance and work towards ecosystem management.
