Title: Noninvasive Approaches to Reduce Human-Cougar Conflict in Protected Areas on the West Coast of Vancouver Island

Year: 2001

Author(s): Danielle Thompson, University of Northern BC

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
Cougars (Puma concolor) are a growing concern for managers of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Since the mid-1990s, the frequency and intensity of human-cougar interactions have dramatically increased. Concurrently, these areas have become increasingly popular for human activities. The primary goal of my study was to recommend ways to reduce the potential risk of human-cougar interactions to ensure long-term conservation of cougars while minimizing risks to visitor safety...

Title: Restoration Plans: Kennedy Flats

Year: 2001

Author(s): Warren Warttig, Interfor; Dave Clough, D.R. CLough Consulting Ltd.; Mike Leslie, Mike Leslie Consulting

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Executive Summary: Restoration plans are developed to aid in the recovery of both terrestrial and aquatic habitats. In order for a restoration plan to be successful all relevant factors must be considered. The most common factor associated with declines of anadromous salmonids is habitat degradation, however a number of other factors play a key role. Many factors, such as habitat loss and degradation, over exploitation in sport and commercial fisheries, global warming and variable ocean conditions, are responsible to a varying degree for the depressed status of salmonids. Restoration of upslope and fluvial processes that create and maintain habitats must be integratl components of any recovery program. This report is limited to the unhealthy ecosystems of upslope, road, stream function, and riparian areas, and does not address fish harvest management, global warming, or variable ocean conditions. Stable landscape units outside the riparian zone are also not addressed in this report, but their status may have minor implications for stream ecosystems. Salmon have evolved to adapt to a series of natural impacts, therefore timber harvesting plans should be encouraged, where possible, to mimic the natural disturbance regimes. Examples of natural disturbance regimes could be: blow down (windstorms cause major natural disturbance to forest in Clayoquot Sound), wildfires, encouraging uneven aged standes to develop from even aged second growth, etc. The Clayoquot Sound Scientific Panel (CSSP) recommendations call for salmon recovery efforts to be based on restoring and conserving ecosystems, rather than simply restoring hte instream habitat attributes. Thi sis important, as relationships between habitat conditions and individual salmonid response have been well established within the habitat unit, stream reach and to the watershed unit as well.

Title: Foraging patterns of gray whales in central Clayoquot Sound, British Columbia, Canada

Year: 2001

Author(s): Jason S. Dunham, Whale Research Laboratory, UVic; David A. Duffus, Whale Research Laboratory, UVic

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Gray whales, Eschrichtius robustus, forage in parts of Clayoquot Sound on several prey species in different habitats. Between June and September in 1996 and 1997 we carried out analyses of the density, biomass and other measures of their primary prey species, and of whales' movement patterns in response to prey characteristics. The prey base consists of hyper-benthic mysids (family Mysidae), pelagic porcelain crab larvae (4 spp. of family Porcellanidae), benthic amphids (family Ampeliscidae) and benthic ghost shrimp, Callianassa californiensis. Whales foraged primarily for mysids, switch to porcelain crab larvae in August, and then to amphipods even later in teh season when these organisms increased in body size. In 1997, whales rapidly switched from feeding on planktonic to benthic prey during mid-August. Sampling indicated low numbers of mysids and crab larvae at that time. Selection of amphipod prey was based on high biomass and a high proportion of individuals less than 6 mm in length. In parts of the study area gray whales did not return to forage on benthic amphipods when this size criteria was not met. A single whale departed from a ghost shrimp feeding ground because its search time for food was long, it achieved only a low biomass removal rate, and it was not able to find sufficient food each day. We show that gray whales are dynamic and selective foragers that switch prey and foraging tactics rapidly to take advantage of short-term availability of energy.

Title: Overcoming obstacles to implementing community-based collaborative governance of natural resources: the case of the Clayoquot Sound Central Region Board.

Year: 2000

Author(s): Peter Abrams

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
Global concerns over the negative impacts of human activities on the environment have precipitated calls for dramatic social and economic changes in the way we manage our natural resources. New governance models must be found that feature the sharing of power, responsibilities and accountabilities, the use of creative and adaptive problem solving, and an ability to generate mutual and sustainable benefits. This study analyses the implementation of one such model, which I argue has taken a significant step toward introducing and institutionalizing these aspects. M.A. Theses, Simon Fraser University

Title: Variations in gray whale feeding behaviour in the presence of whale-watching vessels in Clayoquot Sound.

Year: 2000

Author(s): Joanna Bass

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
The growing industry of whale-watching is allowing increasing numbers of people access to whales in their natural environment, and constitutes a non-consumptive use of the whales compared to whaling. At the same time, questions are often raised about the hidden effects of whale-watching on the whales. Ph.D. Thesis, University of Victoria
