Plains Bison now roam freely in Banff National Park

Parks Canada is pleased to announce that on July 29th, 2018, the enclosed pasture in Banff National Park's bacountry that housed the wild plains bison herd was opened and the herd was released and is now officially free-roaming. After being absent from Banff National Park for well over a century, the return of wild plains bison as free-roaming animals is a historic and cultural triumph. The Banff herd currently totals 31 bison and is comprised of 16 bison that were translocated from Elk Island National Park in 2017, as well as two generations of Banff-born calves (some of this year’s calves have yet to be born).
