Title: First Nations Values in Protected Area Governance: Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks and Pacific Rim National Park Reserve

Year: 2012

Author(s): Grant Murray; Leslie King

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Over the past few decades there has been increasing attention paid to 'shared' forms of governance and to the creation of new protected areas (PAs) that are designed to address 'non-biological' goals and values. The rationale for these initiatives has, in part, been based on the belief that well-designed systems of protected areas governance will help to deliver desired outcomes and meet linked sociocultural, economic and environmental objectives. Addressing these questions has become increasingly important in British Columbia, where a number of First Nations are asserting increasing control over existing state-run protected areas, as well as establishing new protected areas and designing governance systems for them that deliver outcomes consonant with cultural beliefs, values and goals. This paper reports on an in-depth case study of the Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks and the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, with a focus on comparing how these physically adjacent protected areas with different objectives each attempt to meaningfully engage with Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation in PA governance.

Title: Social Science Annotated Bibliography on Human-Carnivore Interactions

Year: 2005

Author(s): C├ęcile Lacombe

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
This annotated bibliography provides a summary of international and North American research and other literature deemed relevant to wolf and cougar management in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, with particular reference to the human side of human-wolf and human-cougar interactions. Where pertinent, examples from research concerned with other wild animals were included. This annotated bibliography has the objective of acquiring a good knowledge of human-carnivore encounters, understanding factors that lead to negative encounters, and identifying management communication strategies that might be useful for addressing the problem.

Title: A Case History of Wolf-Human Encounters in and Around Pacific Rim National Park Reserve (1978-2003)

Year: 2003

Author(s): Todd Windle, University of Northern BC

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Introduction: Previous reviews of wolf-human encounters have found that wild, healthy wolves present little threat to humans, and that aggression towards humans is rare (McNay 2002). However, this view has been challenged due to recent attacks on humans by wolves (McNay 2002). The purpose of this case history review of wolf encounters in and around Pacific Rim National Park Reserve (PRNPR) is to aid park staff in future management decisions. I queried the PRNPR wildlife database for all wolf records, both inside and outside of the park boundary. I then reviewed these records to ensure that no records of observations were actually encounters, and that no records of encounters were actually observations. This resulted in 52 records of wolf encounters from January 1983 to September 2003. McNay (2002) categorised wolf behaviour into 5 categories of aggressive behaviour and 2 categories of non-aggressive behaviour. Because many of the records in the PRNPR wildlife database are lacking a full description of the event, I was only able categorise the records as aggressive or non-aggressive behaviour. I also added an additional category of aggressive behaviour towards dogs because of the high frequency of records containing this type of behaviour. There were 22 records of aggressive behaviour, 13 records of non-aggressive behaviour, and 17 records of aggressive behaviour toward dogs. It should be made clear that this report only contains those records of wolf encounters in the PRNPR database. It is possible that other encounters have happened during this time in the same general area that are not documented in the database.

Title: Tourism, Biodiversity and Information

Year: 2002

Author(s):

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: Noninvasive Approaches to Reduce Human-Cougar Conflict in Protected Areas on the West Coast of Vancouver Island

Year: 2001

Author(s): Danielle Thompson, University of Northern BC

Type: Academic Thesis

Description:
Cougars (Puma concolor) are a growing concern for managers of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Since the mid-1990s, the frequency and intensity of human-cougar interactions have dramatically increased. Concurrently, these areas have become increasingly popular for human activities. The primary goal of my study was to recommend ways to reduce the potential risk of human-cougar interactions to ensure long-term conservation of cougars while minimizing risks to visitor safety...
