The only real solution is for us to manage the tenure ourselves." ...

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Type: Report (unpublished)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: A review of geological records of large tsunamis at Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and implications for hazard

Year: 2000

Author(s): John Clague; Peter Bobrowsky; Ian Hutchinson

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Large tsunamis strike the B.C. coast an average of once every several hundred years. Some of the tsunamis, including one from Alaska in 1964, are the result of distant great earthquakes. Most, however, are triggered by earthquakes at the Cascadia subduction zone, which extends along the Pacific coast from Vancouver Island to northern California. Evidence of these tsunamis has been found in tidal marshes and low-elevation coastal lakes on western Vancouver Island. The tsunamis deposited sheets of sand and gravel now preserved in sequences of peat and mud. These sheets commonly contain marine fossils, and they thin and fine landward, consistent with deposition by landward surges of water.
