Description :
This article examines the changing paradigms in marine and coastal conservation through a case study of clam gardens in the Southern Gulf Islands, Canada. It suggests that a values-based paradigm to conservation that emphasizes active management and further engagement of First Nations, as rights-holders, should be given more emphasis. The literature suggests that there would be minimal ecological impacts at the park level from the re-introduction of clam gardens. There could also be significant advantages both for conservation and First Nations communities. With a greater degree of decision-making input and the opportunity to re-introduce cultural practices, a values-based paradigm may contribute to the acceptability of coastal PAs and promote the expansion of conservation values in the landscape.
