Notice to Clayoquot Connections from BC Parks 09/06/19

 From BC Parks;  You are receiving this as a Park Use Permit holder for Vargas Island Provincial Park. As you may already know, BC Parks has received several recent reports of wolf activity in the provincial park on Vargas Island. I would like to take a moment to remind operators of the importance of their responsibility to ensure that their guests are not having a long lasting impact on the animals present in the park. There have been some concerning reports of park users seen in close proximity to wolves and in areas currently being frequented by the pack. Approaching wolves and maintaining a presence around them can and will lead to habituation. Wolves should be allowed to roam free in their range and have access to food without interference by park visitors. BC Park Rangers have been patrolling the beaches in the areas of concern and will be taking action against anyone found to be harassing or interacting in any way with the wolves. In light of this, I would strongly suggest that all operators transporting guests to Vargas Island ensure that they are aware of the following messaging posted on the BC Parks website:
