Title: Sustainable Environmental Education in the Clayoquot Biosphere Region

Year: 2015

Author(s): Angelika Ebhart, SFU; Rachel Elliott, SFU; Susanne Rachbauer, SFU; Gwyn Thomas, SFU; Celina Willis, SFU

Type: Student Paper

Description:
Our objective for this report was to investigate the availability of environmental education in the region and discuss how, and in which ways, the existing programs could be expanded and enhanced. Currently, at least 24 community organizations within the region have education in their mandate and deliver educational programs (Loucks et al., 2015). Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six of the most active environmental education NGOs in the community, Parks Canada and individual community members active in the environmental education field.

Title: An Integrated Management Framework for the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve

Year: 2015

Author(s): Matt Bakker, SFU; Jessica Daniels, SFU; Ulrike Ellermann, SFU; Claudia Hodl, SFU; Rodrigo Solis-Sosa, SFU

Type: Student Paper

Description:
A review of the CSBR indicates that TOMM is ideally suited to tackle current tourism management challenges in the area. Therefore, this report introduces TOMM - a management approach that establishes best practices and integrates the communitys existing goals and management programs into a comprehensive and coherent framework - offers a background on biosphere reserves - the evolution of a tourism destination - and provides an example for potential implementation of TOMM in the CSBR. For the example we generated desired, yet achievable, economic, environmental, socio-cultural, and experiential conditions based on existing data and selected matching indicators to achieve measurability of these conditions.

Title: Kennedy Watershed Restoration Project

Year: 2014

Author(s): Jessica Hutchinson; Lily Burke; Warren Warttig

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
The Kennedy Flats Watershed is located in Clayoquot Sound, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada. Much of the watershed was logged between 1950 and 1980. Logging practices of the time were not designed to protect wildlife or fish habitat, and as a result many of the streams in the area have reduced fish access, poor water quality, and lack the necessary characteristics to support healthy and diverse wildlife populations. Central Westcoast Forest Society (CWFS) initiated the Kennedy Watershed Restoration Project in 1994 to address the conditions affecting wildlife and wild salmon productivity. Since that time, CWFS restoration crews have been working to restore the hydrological and ecological functions of the watershed. ...

Title: Aboriginal Peoples and Forest Lands in Canada

Year: 2013

Author(s):

Type: Book

Description:
Back cover copy: Aboriginal people in Canada have long struggled to regain control over their traditional forest lands. Aboriginal Peoples and Forest Lands in Canada brings together the diverse perspectives of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal scholars to address the political, cultural, environmental, and economic implications of forest use. The book discusses the need for professionals working in forestry and conservation to understand the context of Aboriginal participation in resource management.

Title: The persistence and stability of fish assemblages within eelgrass meadows (Zostera marina) on the Pacific coast of Canada

Year: 2013

Author(s): Cliff Robinson, Marine Protected Areas Research Group, UVic; Jennifer Yakimishyn, Pacific Rim National Parks Reserve

Type: Journal Article

Description:
The persistence and stability of fish assemblages found in 34 eelgrass (Zostera marina) meadows along the British Columbia coast was examined from 2004 to 2011. Assemblage persistence (nontrending species composition) and assemblage stability (constancy in abundance over time) were assessed using a time-lag regression method that tests for temporal turnover within short time series. Overall, 85 percent of the fish assemblages persisted, and 80 percent of the assemblages exhibited stability in abundance over the 8-year study. Environmental conditions in 33 of 34 meadows did not change substantially over the 8 years, and the low interannual variability may have contributed to the high persistence and stability of the fish assemblages. The lack of temporal turnover in relatively undisturbed eelgrass fish assemblage properties is a critical element for effective monitoring of coastal ecosystem integrity.
