Encompassing 350 000 hectares on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Clayoquot Sound contains some of the largest tracts of intact, coastal temperate rainforest in North America. The area has garnered much attention in the past when Aboriginal people and environmentalists conflicted with the logging industry. However, moving forward, the work to build a sustainable Clayoquot Sound is ongoing. People here are mitigating the effects of industrial logging, reducing the impacts of tourism, growing sustainable seafood, uncovering historical ecosystems using ancient whale bones, and volunteering to clean up garbage from half a world away. But most importantly, they are using traditional knowledge to create practical economical models to support people and the environment. One of the ways this is happening is through an increased recognition of the traditional practices of the regions First Nations, the Nuu-chah-nulth people.
