Canada | Waterton Lakes NP begins restocking bison herd

Six young plains bison have arrived at Waterton Lakes National Park, replenishing a small herd that had to be relocated during the 2017 Kenow Wildfire.

They came from Elk Island National Park and were released February 19 into the park’s isolated winter paddock where the rough fescue prairie they need to eat has finally regrown. In late spring, the bison — four females and two males — will be transferred to the summer paddock where visitors can safely view them from their vehicles.
