Natives, government to co-manage park

By Glenn Bohn and Amy O’Brian

An aboriginal group and the B.C. government agreed Sunday to jointly manage a massive marine park of pristine beaches and old-growth forests near Bella Bella.

In the language of the Heiltsuk Nation, the mid-coast area is the Hakai Luxvblais, which roughly translates to “waves rolling in.

The already protected area is the largest marine park in B.C., encompassing almost 123,000 hectares of land and sea, an area equivalent in size to 300 Stanley Parks.

It is a remote shoreline with reversing tidal rapids, shallow lagoons, whales and other marine mammals — drawing scuba divers, kayakers, anglers and others.
