Title: Management for a Living Hesquiat Harbour

Year: 1992

Author(s): Jim Darling, Tonquin Research Inc.

Type: Proceedings

Description:
Introduction: This was the first of two workshops to develop protection, management, restoration and research programs for the Hesquiat Harbour region. The overall objective of the project is, "To protect and restore the living resources and ecosystems of Hesquiat territory to allow sustainable levels of harvest in the future." The main purpose of this workshop was to share information regarding the status and biology of natural resources and habitat in Hesquiat territory. It is intended to set the stage for a second workshop when a long term research program for Hesquiat territory will be developed. This workshop also focused on the development of studies which may be undertaken in the interim, before the long term program is developed, and on interim protection measures for Hesquiat territory to ensure that the overall objective of the program can be achieved.

Title: Coastal Temperate Rain Forests: Ecological Characteristics, Status and Distribution Worldwide

Year: 1992

Author(s): Jim Weigand; Andy Mitchell; Dennis Morgan

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Ecotrust and Conservational International have prepared this document for the explicit purpose of soliciting comments from researchers and managers working in coastal temperate rain forests around the world. We have developed a global GIS database to assess the distribution and status of coastal temperate rain forests, and so that new information can be incorporated in the database as it becomes available. This report presents conflicting estimates of the areal extent of coastal temperate rain forests as a result of different methods and information sources. We hope that readers will inform us of any errors or additional data that would help us refine and update the global database, and to build future regional databases. This report includes preliminary maps illustrating the "original" extent of coastal temperate rain forests. We define original as post-glaciation, pre-human settlement. In many regions, this admittedly translates to pre-colonial settlement.

Title: The Challenge of Forest Stewardship in British Columbia

Year: 1992

Author(s): Melanie Platz

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
Forestry has been the leading resource sector in British Columbia for over a century. Until recently, the province's forests were viewed as a limitless resource, and management activities focused exclusively on timber production, with little consideration for non-timber forest values or uses. Since the 1940s, provincial policy has encouraged private sector control of forest resources. Consequently, the provincial forest industry is now dominated by large timber companies, many of them foreign-owned. In 1991, the British Columbia Forest Resources Commission released a report revealing widespread public discontent with both the tenure system, and with corporate management of forest resources . One of the most contentious issues is the conversion of old-growth forests to intensively managed tree farms. While this approach maximized timber production, it adversely affects the non-timber values associated with natural forest ecosystems. With most of the old growth in the province slated for harvest, the public is now demanding a greater balance between the social, ecological and economic benefits provided by old-growth forests. Despite these changing public perceptions, the government has failed to integrate non-timber forest values into forets planning and management. The lack of opportunity for the public to participate effectively in these processes has led to a growing number of resource conflicts in the province. It is the premise of this paper that forest management in British Columbia does not adequately address social and ecological considerations in forest planning and management. The challenge of forest stewardship is therefore two-fold. If forests are to be sustained, and managed for commodity and non-commodity values, then forestry practices must be based on sound ecological principles. And if forestry is to be equitable, then the public must be incorporated as part of the decision-making process. The purpose of this paper is to explore these two themes. The first chapter traces the evolution of corporate control in the forest sector, and considered the impacts of corporate concentration on forest-dependent communities. THe policy of sustained-yield in British Columbia forms the basis for the current tenure system, and the role of this policy in converting old-growth forests to tree farms is examined. The second chapter introduces the concept of biological diversity and explores the ecology of old-growth forests. Traditional forest management has worked to simplify forest ecosystems--and approach which fails to integrate non-timber forest values. The differences between natural and managed forests are discussed, and the opportunity for maintaining biological diversity in managed forests is considered through a management approach known as the "new forestry." The opportunities for public involvement are reviewed in the third chapter, and a number of options for reforming the decision-making process are outlined. Chapter Four presents a case study of integrated resource planning for the Tofino Creek watershed on Vancouver island. The Tofino Creek Planning Process provided an opportunity for community involvement, and for the integration of all resource values in the watershed. The purpose of this chapter is to analyze the effectiveness of the Tofino Creek Planning Process at meeting these objectives. The Tofino Creek Integrated Resource Management Strategy is also examined for its effectiveness at incorporating ecological values. In the concluding chapter, the Tofino Creek Planning Process is considered in light of broader constraints. This chapter offers some thoughts on the challenges to implementing a more socially- and ecologically-responsible form of forest stewardship.

Title: Ecologically Sustainable Economic Development in Alberni-Clayoquot

Year: 1992

Author(s): Clayoquot Biosphere Project; Ecotrust

Type: Proceedings

Description:
In order to stimulate creative thinking about sustainable development opportunities in the Alberni-Clayoquot region, the Clayoquot Biosphere Project and Ecotrust commissioned background research on secondary wood products manufacturing and the potential for community forests in the area. The first phase of this research culminated in a day-lnog workshop in Long Beach held on May 29, 1992. The workshop was attended by 35 invited participants including local entrepreneurs, successful wood products business owners from other parts of BC and the United States, construction and forestry workers, woodlot owners, native representatives, government officials, members of the local Chambers of Commerce, and a credit union official.

Title: Environmental disturbance and conservation of marine and shoreline birds on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

Year: 1991

Author(s): Kees Vermeer; Ken Morgan; Robert Butler

Type: Proceedings

Description:
abstract: Loss of habitat and oiling of birds represents two major threats to marine and shoreline bird populations on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Logging of mature and old-growth forests has led to the destruction of the nesting habitat of Marbled Murrelets Brachyramphus marmoratus, whereas industrial development of estuaries, mudflats and spawning grounds of Pacific herring Clupea harengus pallasi has diminished feeding habitats for other marine and shoreline birds. Fisheries operations, human disturbance of colonies, and introduced predators, notably racoon Procyon lotot and mink Mustela vison, have impacted upon local populations. Management actions and research needs to mitigate these threats are addressed. pp129-133.
