Loughborough Inlet is a deep fjord in the Coast Mountain Range of mainland British Columbia, situated midway between Knight Inlet and Bute Inlet north of the Discovery Islands. The scenic inlet is approximately 35 kilometres long, and the Stafford River estuary is located at the head of the inlet.

During the 20th century, the head of the Loughborough Inlet was subjected to intensive resource extraction, including clear-cut logging and salmon fishing, which lead to the degradation of the Stafford River estuary and a serious decline in salmon runs.

The Stafford Estuary Conservancy was created in 2007 to protect the estuary and 742 hectares of upland and foreshore immediately surrounding the mouth of the Stafford River, and promote recovery of the ecosystem. The grasses and sedges of the estuary now provide a valuable food source for black and grizzly bears in the spring.

These images were made while on a tour with Wild Waterways Adventures out of Campbell River.

It was our third trip out with them this year. They are a small company, but their trips are great - which is probably why they get so many repeat customers.

Beautiful area and photographs. I love the lines in the last image. Good to read about it becoming protected and restored.

Thanks, Ross.

Unfortunately, what you can't see, is just behind the row of trees on the right side of the last photo - bulldozers and haul trucks building up the logging road for the clear cuts farther up the valley. The estuary itself is protected, but not much of the watershed.
