Island camping

Ahous Bay on the west side of Vargas Island has had a number marine mammal  sightings lately.  Often this year Gray whales, Humpback whales, and porpoises have been feeding in the bay,
 
When in Ahous bay please remember to use the aluminium food cache located at the beach trail-head of the 'Old Telegraph-line Trail' at the south end of the beach. Once wolves eat our food they are quickly habituated to human food and can become dangerously aggressive.  In the past wolves on Vargas Island have had to be shot by the park rangers as a result of being fed.  We have an info sheet from BC Parks with other tips on this matter.  Remember it is very important that wild animals (particularly mammals) have a 'healthy' fear of humans, it keeps both them and us safe.
 
I should also mention please don't eat mussels or clams this time of year as they can be contaminated with 'Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning' and KILL YOU!  They are usually OK to eat by November.
