Suitable for all adventurous families with children over 5 years of age. Clayoquot Sound Receives Biosphere Reserve Designation from UNESCO.

Nearly 350,000 ha (265,705 ha terrestrial, 84,242 ha marine), Clayoquot Sound was recently designated as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Science and Cultural Organization). All of the current economic planning and resource management processes in the region are being led by, or directly involve, local First Nations (the Nuu-chah-nulth peoples) and non-aboriginal communities. The Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Charter serves as an encompassing policy statement, under which a mosaic of approved plans, policies and processes form the basis of management within the reserve. The Charter acknowledges local aboriginal title and rights, and does not prejudice ongoing treaty negotiations. The Clayoquot Biosphere Trust, as the administrative cornerstone of the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve, provides logistics and co-ordination support for the promotion of research, education and training opportunities, and of healthy communities, in the biosphere reserve region.
