Description:
Yun Ka Whu'ten Holding Ltd has developed a strategic plan for wildlife in the Anahim Supply Block to provide habitat for naturally occurring wildlife across their historic range. This work is part of a process that began with the Cariboo Chilcotin Land Use Plan. The CCLUP is a higher level plan that guided the application of the Forest Practices Code and provided resource management targets for the Cariboo Region. Together with the CCLUP Integration Report (1998) these documents serve to guide planning at the sub-regional level. The Anahim Round Table sub-regional plan was conducted using a community approach to set resource planning targets. This strategic wildlife plan provides mechanisms to meet targets of the CCLUP and ART documents, provide information to statutory decision makers and landscape level planning, as well as guidance to planners at the operational level. The information used in this plan has been gathered from local studies conducted by YKW, government publications, and information gathered elsewhere. It has been conducted to ensure that most recent information available was used in formulating a wildlife plan. This is especially significant given the large changes in seral distribution and potential impacts to biodiversity expected due to the current MPB epidemic. YKW has made important contributions to research on wildlife populations in this area and an adaptive framework should be used to assess and modify the practices that are implemented where necessary. Finally, forest health planning is also required to decrease the potential for future large scale insect infestations. That planning must include adaptive management regarding the response of wildlife species as well as the development of models capable of predicting the spatial and temporal dynamics of MPB outbreaks in relation to forest management.
