Title: Tofino Mudflats Wildlife Management Area Management Plan

Year: 2002

Author(s): M. Eggen; S. Diggon; A. Mason

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
A management plan for the Tofino Mudflats Wildlife Management Area (WMA) was initiated by the BC Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection (MWLAP). The main objectives of the management plan were to provide a current ecological and human use description, an integrated management strategy that strives to protect the natural resources of the WMA, and a plan for a wildlife viewing network. Current information on ecological and human use was collected from existing documented sources and through consultations with the public, local governments and organizations. A consultation process was initiated in order to gather and incorporate community input in planning for management of the WMA. The Tofino Mudflats WMA is defined by its jurisdictional boundaries; however, it is ecologically connected with surrounding marine and terrestrial environments at local, regional and international levels. These connects are reflected in the management plan.

Title: Tourism, Biodiversity and Information

Year: 2002

Type: Book

Description:
Note: Book includes chapter: Protecting for Ecological Integrity in a Coastal National Park: Visitor Use in Pacific Rim National Park, Vancouver Island, Canada Back cover: The year 2002 has been designated by the United Nations as the International Year for Ecotourism, and this book comes as a very timely one. The starting point for designing sustainable ecotourism programs will be in biosphere reserves, national parks and other biodiversity-rich areas. Such programs have to be designed in a manner that they help us to realize the following Seville Vision of Management of Biosphere Reserves in the 21st Century: Rather than forming islands in a world increasingly affected by severe reserves can become theatres for reconciling people and nature. They can bring the knowledge of the past to the needs of the future. Unless ecotourism methodology fosters an economic stake in conservation, it will be difficult to make tourism ecofriendly. This is why a very carefully designed participatory planning methodology will have to be developed along with local communities. The 28 chapters of this book cover many facets of the relationship between tourism and biodiversity. The case studies are exceedingly interesting and relevant. I hope that the book will be read and used widely so that everyone in our planet can understand the truth behind Mahatma Gandhi's dictum: Nature provides for everybody's needs, but not for everyone's greed. - Prof. M. S. Swaminathan, UNESCO Cousteau Chair

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: The Effects of Variable Removal Levels of the Sea Urchin, Strongylocentrotus faciscanus, on near-shore rocky communities in the traditional territory of the Hesquiat First Nation

Year: 2001

Author(s): Robert C. Mooney, California State Polytechnic University

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
The shallow subtidal regions near Hot Springs Cove, Vancouver Isalnd, British Columbia are characterized by large rocky areas dominated by the red sea urchin, Strongylocentrotus franciscanus. S. franciscanus were removed at three sites with four levels of urchin removal per site. Manipulations of urchin density were maintained throughout the experiment and monitored seasonally for two seasons pre-treatment and seven seasons post-treatment. The manipulations resulted in increased gonad indices of remaining red sea urchins and caused the conversion of urchin dominated subtidal regions into kelp dominated communities with greater fish abundance. As well, a feeding experiment illustrated that the depressed gonad indices of field-collected urchins resulted from limited food resources in areas of high urchin density. The removal of sea urchins at all levels results in a rapid increase in the presence of laminarialean algal species (kelps). Study plots where all urchins were removed developed a dense understory and seasonal canopy of kelps with little bare rock remaining. Intermediate levels of removal resulted in a mosaic of smaller urchin-dominated and kelp-dominated patches. Control plots tended to maintain the urchin-dominated barrens-state throughout the study period. Sea urchins that were fed M. intergrifolia during the feeding experiment showed 2.9 and 2.4 times greater gonadal development by weight than urchins collected from the field before and after the feeding trial, respectively. These results suggest that food limitation is an important factor in the gonadal development of this urchin population. Findings suggest that with supplemental feeding, the resource base of sea urchins could be expanded to include barren habitats. The removal of S. franciscanus at all levels results in an increase in the fecundity (measured as gonad index) for the sea urchins that remained, as well as for the urchins that reinvaded the total removal plots. All study plots showed an increase in gonad index over time, but the increase in gonad index was statistically greater for urchins in removal plots versus the control plots. The results indicate that small isolated urchin removals can have measurable effects on the fishery value of nearby urchins. Of the seven fish species monitored, pile perch, striped seaperch, kelp perch and black rockfish were most associated with kelp forest habitat. Kelp greenling, lingcod and copper rockfish showed no association with kelp forest habitat. The experimental approach taken indicates that sea urchin removal, and subsequent kelp growth, determined relative fish abundance. High densities of S. franciscanus appear to be responsible for the absence of kelp forest habitat in the region, the depressed fecundity (gonad index) of S. franciscanus, and the abundance of some fish species. The effect of urchin removal is discussed in regards to the implications for ecological theory as well as sea urchin fisheries management.
