Vancouver Island is Canada’s eleventh largest island. With a population of less than one million, the island has vast areas of wilderness that are home to large land animals such as black bears, towering ancient rainforests, and over 3,000 km of coastline made up of hundreds of inlets formed during the last glacial age, which support a rich variety of marine wildlife.
Situated on the west side of the island, Clayoquot and Barkley Sounds represent a small part of this coastline. The 40 km stretch between the towns of Tofino and Ucluelet is a short distance by Canadian standards, yet the places of interest seem endless. Despite up to one million visitors passing through Clayoquot and Barkley Sounds annually, it is possible to explore areas of old growth forest, secret coves, and beautiful beaches and still feel as if you have this pristine wilderness entirely to yourself.
This spectacular coffee table book is divided into three broad sections that showcase and celebrate the island’s major habitat zones and some of their most iconic inhabitants. Featured in the Coast section are images showing the unique behaviour of the Vancouver Island black bear, bald eagles in flight and spectacular panoramic photographs capturing the quintessential scenery of the West Coast.
In Forest, images range from towering old growth western red cedar trees to macro details of golden chanterelle mushrooms and images captured from the world famous West Coast Trail.
The final section, Ocean, goes beyond the shoreline to include breaching humpback whales, mischievous sea otters and enigmatic killer whales set against the dramatic mountainous backdrop of Clayoquot and Barkley Sounds.
