Title: Clayoquot Sound Wildlife Sighting Survey 1993

Date: 1993

Author(s): Kumar Biswas

Produced For: Clayoquot Biosphere Project

Description: Introduction: In 1993, the Clayoquot Biosphere Project initiated a program to document wildlife sightings in Clayoquot Sound, Vancouver Island. The program was intended to determine which species are commonly sighted, in what season, and the location of prime habitat. The program relies on the participation of local residents, including charter boat skippers, pilots, kayak tour guides and tourists. A database of local knowledge of wildlife, developed from opportunistic sightings and regular field surveys, will assist in monitoring natural patterns and variation, and the impacts of human disturbance. Clayoquot Sound is the largest remaining tract of semi-intact coastal temperate rainforest on Vancouver Island. This provides an opportunity to collect wildlife sightings in the context of a natural ecosystem.
