Year: 2004

Author(s): Ha-Shilth-Sa

Type: Newspaper Article

Description:
n an article in the Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences (1984), it was shown that noise has a profound effect on the swimming and spawning patterns of Pacific Herring, particularly if those noises come from boats and fishing gear. "There is a significant amount of scientific literature on sensitivity of fish to sounds and the effects of those sounds on their behavior," said Central Region Biologist Josie Osborne. "Herring have never been reported to be attracted to any natural or artificial noises, but have responded negatively to some," she said.....

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: Participation Equality in the Public Policy Process

Year: 2000

Author(s): Christine Callihoo, University of Northern BC

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
Public policy formation, and the resources needed to influence it, are examined in this study by looking at pressure group theory, the opinions of environmental activists, and the Clayoquot Land Use Decision. The study identified how an individual may influence public policy, and the resources necessary to influence the public policy process. The study results also identified what the necessary resources are in order for individuals (activists) to participate more effectively in pressure group activities. The Clayoquot Sound case study, analyzed using Kingdon's policy model and Pross' policy model, reveals a correlation between what pressure group theorists and activists suggest are necessary resources in order to participate in the policy process. The research demonstrates that in order to fully participate in the policy process, the necessary resources (such as money, leadership, and expert advice, and most significantly political alliances ( must be available to all participants. The research established that in order for all interests to have the opportunity to equally influence the policy outcome, there requires a shift in the 'productive interest'-dominated political paradigm.
