Title: HERA: The Fire Ship of Clayoquot Sound

Year: 2012

Author(s): David Griffiths

Type: Book

Description:
Back cover copy: "On a November night in 1899 the darkness of Tofino Harbour was driven back by the arrival of a blazing ship of fire. This drifting inferno was the abandoned American Schooner HERA, about to end her final voyage from hell. With an already storied past, the HERA was far from finished with history in the aftermath of her loss would become the catalyst for murder and mayhem, selfless acts of heroism and humanity, intrigue and insanity. Designated British Columbia's first underwater heritage site upon its discovery in 1974, the HERA continues to this day to give up long-guarded secrets from her past. Though the flames are long extinguished, memory still burns bright for the fire ship of Clayoquot Sound."

Title: Which Whales Were Hunted? Genetic Species Identification of Bones from Traditional Whaling Sites on Vancouver Island

Year: 2012

Author(s): Stephanie Beland

Type: Student Paper

Description:
Archaeological evidence and oral history suggest that active whale hunting by the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations of Vancouver Island is a large part of their traditional culture. What is not clear is which species was the preferred target. Some data suggest that the primary target was gray whales (Eschrichtuis robustus), whereas other sources of information suggest that the hunt targeted a mixture of gray and humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae). Addressing this issue is of increasing importance due to the interest of some traditional groups in resuming their hunts, now that these two species are recovering from industrial whaling. Here, I address this issue through the genetic analysis of bones recovered from historic whaling sites. Samples were collected from a range of sites, the DNA extracted, and species identification was based on sequence analysis of two regions of the mitochondrial DNA (the control region and the cytochrome b gene). I was able to successfully obtain DNA from over 90% of the bones, and the data suggests an approximate 50:50 ratio or gray and humpback whales in the traditional hunts. Further sampling, across a wider range of traditional sites, is needed to address regional difference in preferred species. These data demonstrate the great promise of this approach for informing management decisions regarding the resumption of these traditional hunts, and will also lead to an improved understanding of this aspect of Canadian history and culture.

Title: Wetland surveys for breeding amphibians within the Clayoquot Biosphere Reserve Region 2008-2011.

Year: 2011

Author(s): Barbara A. Beasley

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
The goal of this project is to protect the integrity of local wetland ecosystems within the Clayoquot Biosphere Reserve Region over time. These habitats provide a variety of ecological services and support amphibian species listed as being "at risk" within Canada. This project will determine the local status of Red-legged Frogs (Rana aurora) and Western Toads (Bufo boreas) and use fluctuations in their populations, as well as Northwestern Salamanders (Ambystoma gracile), as barometers of the health of our wetland ecosystems. Amphibians are good indicators of ecosystem intergrity becuase they are particularly sensitive to changes in water quality and quantity, and they are an integral part of the food webs within wetlands and surrounding forests. Habitat destruction, highway traffic, pollution, introduced Bullfrogs, and disease may reduce amphians populations. Sharing information on how these threats influence the status of local populations will help promote stewardship of wetland ecosystems in the region. The project objectives area: 1. To survey freshwater wetlands and monitor the breeding populations of two species at risk, the Red-legged Frog, the Western Toad, and a third species, the Northwestern Salamander, in and around Ucluelet, Tofino, and the Long Beach Unit of Pacific Rim National Park Resrve (PRNPR). 2. To describe vegetation, hydrology and surrounding conditions, of the wetlands. 3. To do surveillance for introduced Bullfrogs. 4. To provide opportunities for local youth and adults to learn skills involved in surveying amphibians and doing Bullfrog surveillance at wetlands. 5. To share information with local planners, government agencies, community leaders, landowners, and the general public in an effort to help maintain the ecological value of local wetlands, and the species at risk they support. ...

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.
