Bison Belong congratulates Parks Canada

Bison Belong congratulates Parks Canada for taking an important step towards the return of wild bison in Banff National Park. This morning Canada's Federal Minister of the Environment, the Honourable Peter Kent, announced the launch of the public consultation for the re-introduction of an iconic native species, the plains bison in Banff National Park. Wild bison roamed free in this landscape for thousands of years but have been absent from the park since its creation.

"It is time to correct a mistake from the past and move on to a fully functioning ecosystem in the 21st century. Bison is the native grazer in the system, and it is missing." Bison Belong is glad that Parks Canada is offering to Canadians the chance to participate in an important action to restore ecological integrity to the park.

Bison Belong is coordinated by the Eleanor Luxton Historical Foundation based in Banff and has broad support from businesses, environmental groups and the general public. The Bison Belong community includes Ski Banff, Lake Louise, Sunshine, Coyotes, Les Francos de la Bow, the Bison Courtyard, Alberta Bison Ranch, Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative, Wapiti Sports & Outfitter, Chateau Mountain Resort, the Canmore Folk Festival, CPAWS, and The Town of Canmore and many other recreational businesses and those in hospitality.

Bringing the bison back to Banff National Park is something good we can do for nature, while possibly enriching the park visitor experience.
