Clayoquot Biosphere Project Storymap
During a time of major tension about forestry practices in the region, the CBP aimed to observe and learn from the ecologically undisturbed forests and rivers of Clayoquot Sound. The project contributed to the eventual UNESCO Biosphere Region designation in 2000 and the formation of our organization, the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust!
The CBP StoryMap is part of a collection on Science and Conservation in the Clayoquot Biosphere Region put together by West Coast NEST. It shares background information and research highlights from the Clayoquot Valley, in the heart of Tla o qui aht Tribal Parks' Ha'uukmin Tribal Park. Please note that the activities described in this StoryMap took place 20+ years ago; today, Tla-o-qui-aht Nation is visioning how to manage this sacred place, and as such are not welcoming visitors without permission into the Clayoquot Valley portion of Ha'uukmin Tribal Park.
