More Than the Sum of Our Parks: People, Places and a Protected Areas System for British Columbia

MORE THAN THE SUM OF OUR PARKS: PEOPLE, PLACES AND A PROTECTED AREAS SYSTEM FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA.
by Ecotrust Canada and Ecotrust, 1997

We have produced a critique of B.C.’s protected areas, especially with reference to the Park Act’s prejudice to First Nations rights. More than the Sum of Our Parks advocates through proposed new legislation, a better accommodation of First Nations rights and a wholesale re-thinking of the role of protected areas in our society. The publication includes a folded 18" x 18" map in a back pocket that depicts the current state of B.C.’s protected areas overlayed with First Nations land claims areas.

Seeing the Ocean through the Trees: a Conservation-Based Development Strategy for Clayoquot Sound

SEEING THE OCEAN THROUGH THE TREES: A CONSERVATION-BASED DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY FOR CLAYOQUOT SOUND
by Ecotrust Canada, 1997

Ecotrust Canada's book features the first ever landscape analysis of the findings of the Scientific Panel for Sustainable Forestry Practices in Clayoquot Sound. After the so-called "Clayoquot summer" of 1993 - when more than 800 people were arrested for protesting the government's land-use decision that year - the scientific panel was asked to produce world-class logging standards for Clayoquot Sound. The analysis that shows that fully 20,000 cubic metres of timber per year can be sustainably harvested from Clayoquot Sound, and the protection of the Sound's remaining pristine watersheds can be secured.

In addition to its findings concerning the rate of logging, Seeing the Ocean Through the Trees includes a set of recommendations that describe the necessary elements to move Clayoquot Sound's economy away from its dependence on forest products towards a truly sustainable economy. These include redrawing Clayoquot Sound's administrative boundaries to coincide with watershed boundaries, thus reflecting natural processes; creating a set of community indicators for measuring socio-economic and ecosystem health over time; and establishing a permanent development institution to offer marketing, managerial and technical support, and non-bank credit to local businesses, in order to promote responsible business practices and to help grow a green market for sustainably produced goods.
