Canada | Federal government unveils plan to keep Wood Buffalo NP off WH “In Danger” List

OTTAWA — The federal government intends to save the international heritage status of Canada’s largest national park by increasing staffing, better monitoring oil-sands tailings and artificially recreating spring flooding to rejuvenate the park’s waterways.

Ottawa submitted a 96-page action plan to save the Wood Buffalo National Park to the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization Friday to stave off having the park designated as “in danger” due to poor management practices.
