Sensitivity analyses indicate that a small drop in black bear survival rates greatly increases the risk of extinction in both females and males. Since the mortality rate of bears in the park is directly affected by harvesting intensity and habitat alteration, La Mauricie National Park aims to limit human activities to ensure that a viable black bear population is maintained. The relative abundance of the black bear is assessed in the spring using a network of 30 sampling stations equipped with surveillance cameras or trail cameras..

This program is used to track Black Oystercatcher (Haematopus bachmani) population trend, local abundance, and annual survivorship. Bird banding, re-sighting visits and nesting population counts occur annually in the spring, with banding occurring in May to July since 2007, and nesting population counts occurring in late May or early June since 2008. The measurement for this species represents a complete annual census of birds nesting at key nesting locations across the park and is standardized across the three National Parks in the Coastal British Columbia bioregion with links to monitoring programs taking place in Alaska and Washington State. Completely dependent on marine shorelines for its food and nesting, these monogamous and long-lived birds establish well-defined breeding pairs and occupy composite feeding and nesting territories year after year, often along low-sloping gravel or rocky shorelines where intertidal prey are abundant.

This program focuses on capturing the abundance and structure of groundfish communities typical of nearshore kelp forests including Black Rockfish (Sebastes melanops), Copper Rockfish (Sebastes caurinus), Kelp Greenling (Hexagrammos decagrammus) and Sea Perch: Kelp Perch (Brachyistius frenatus), Pile Perch (Rhacochilus vacca) and Striped Perch (Embiotoca lateralis) combined. Surveys were completed annually in August and September at sites within the Broken Group Islands and consisted of a transect through a kelp forest patch at approximately 10m depth. Surveys began in 2008 and changed methodology in 2013 from a 2 diver survey (2 surveyors along a 25m long by 4m wide band transect) to a 1 diver survey (1 diver along a 30m long by 2 m wide band transect). This data is used to determine the status and trend in kelp-forest associated fish, including fish abundance and the effectiveness of the Rockfish Conservation Areas (RCAs) on fish abundance.

Distribution of Black Oystercatcher habitat in coastal British Columbia showing relative abundance (RA) by season and overall relative importance (RI). RI is based on project region and not on the province as a whole. CRIMS is a legacy dataset of BC coastal resource data that was acquired in a systematic and synoptic manner from 1979 and was intermittently updated throughout the years. Resource information was collected in nine study areas using a peer-reviewed provincial Resource Information Standards Committee consisting of DFO Fishery Officers, First Nations, and other subject matter experts.

This program captures the relative abundance and distribution of five common seabirds occurring in the waters of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve including the Marbled Murrelet (Brachyramphus marmoratus), Common Murre (Uria aalge), Rhinoceros Auklet (Cerorhinca monocerata), Pigeon Guillemot (Cepphus columba), and Pelagic Cormorant (Phalacrocorax pelagicus). The at-sea surveys are done approximately every two weeks from May to September and use standardized fixed-route strip transects to estimate annual variations in the population of seabirds using the near-shore waters of the park. Seabirds are prominent members of the inshore marine ecosystems and are considered to be sentinels of both local and broad environmental change. The demographic stability of seabird populations may serve as an integrated measure of health of the shoreline ecosystem.

Black Oystercatcher breeding success is estimated by visually surveying known breeding habitat in key areas of Gwaii Haanas. Surveys are conducted twice a year during breeding season. Black Oysercatchers are very vulnerable to disturbances, predation of eggs and young, predators, oil spills and reduction of food sources due to global warming. They are also considered to be a keystone species in the north Pacific, and an indicator of the health of the rocky shoreline and intertidal community.

As part of the new initiative on Promoting Health Equity: Mental Health of Black Canadians Fund, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is partnering with community-based organizations, researchers and others in Black communities to generate new evidence on culturally focused programs and interventions that address mental health and its determinants for Black Canadians. This work will include supporting the implementation of this initiative by also undertaking knowledge development and capacity building efforts. The new information and evidence produced by projects under the Mental Health of Black Canadians program will be shared as it becomes available.
