Title: Carrying Capacity for Sustainable Tourism Development: Tofino, British Columbia, Canada

Year: 2007

Author(s): Erin Lindsey O'Brien

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
Tourism has the potential of leaving permanent footprints on the physical, cultural and economic environments of tourism destinations. Understanding and managing these footprints is paramount to understanding the industry, and to the successful management of the associated host-guest relationships. Research questions and objectives examine the concept of tourism carrying capacity and tourism space to determine whether tourism development in Tofino, British Columbia has exceeded its limits of acceptable use. Data were collected through surveys directed to three stakeholder groups: local residents, tourism businesses and tourists. Data were analyzed using quantitative, qualitative and spatial means. The research found that tourism carrying capacity has not been exceeded for the business and tourist participants, but is divided within the resident stakeholder group. Perceived tourism space was similar for all participant groups, but some identified areas did not match the defined boundaries of tourist use set forth by the District of Tofino.

Title: Sea Otter (Enhydra lutris) Recovery on the West Coast of Vancouver Island

Year: 2007

Author(s): Melanie Kuxdorf; Jennifer Linton

Type: Student Paper

Description:
Introduction: Sea otters have been the target of both human greed and compassion for centuries. Once extirpated in many areas around the North Pacific Ocean due to intense hunting, a treaty in 1911 halted the commercial hunt allowing sea otters to begin a natural recovery. This, however, was too little, too late for the British Columbia population. By the middle of the century, the sea otter's key role in the Pacific marine ecosystem was becoming clear. A group of Alaskan sea otters were translocated to areas along the North American coast where they began to recover and expand their range. A significant increase in the sea otter population after nearly a century of extirpation is now a cause for concern in human inhabited areas. Sea otters are impacting shellfish fisheries along the coast of British Columbia, interfering with commercial and subsistence harvests. The communities on Vancouver Island, British Columbia are not only concerned about the impact sea otters will have on their liveliood but are angered by the way the Department of Fisheries and OCeans is handling the reintroduction of this once abundant keystone species. Sea otter populations are increasing and their return to Clayoquot Sound is inevitable. This project proposed tourism focusing on sea otters, as a means of replacing and even exceeding revenue lost from the shellfish fishery. We propose members of the small and geographically isolated communities of the West Coast of Vancouver Island will be able to benefit from the return of the sea otter, financially and culturally.

Title: Wild Wolves? Understanding human-wolf interactions in a coastal Canadian National Park Reserve.

Year: 2006

Author(s): Jennifer Smith, Lakehead University

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
In the Broken Group Islands unit (BGI) of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, there are increasing accounts of human-wolf interactions due to a combination of the recent migration of wolves (Canis lupus) into the area and high human use. The wolves have begun exhibiting less wariness of humans and are learning to forage for food in areas frequented by visitors. In this island environment, paddlers (kayakers and canoeists) constitute a significant 95% of total users, a highly influential group worthy of study. These increasing human-wolf interactions have prompted park managers to explore the human dimensions of wolf management with the intention to reduce risks to both people and wolves. In response to this need, I used a mixed-methods approach (surveys and interviews) to find out what attitudes were prevalent among paddlers in this area and how people perceived and felt about wolves being in the area.

Title: Mayor reports on hake season

Year: 2005

Author(s): Lisa Stewart, The Westerly News

Type: Newspaper Article

Description:
At between $16 and $17 million in delivery to onshore processors alone, hake is growing as an important Canadian fishery and Ucluelet is in the thick of it.

"Onshore processors did get the fish they required when they required it," said St. Jacques. But in an industry plagued by problem after problem (such as the mad cow crisis that caused the surimi market to drop) the truckers strike in Vancouver was manageable, but still a stumbling block for 2005....
