This video presents “Why CPAWS supports the reintroduction of Bison to Banff National Park.”

  • Canadian Parks And Wilderness Society (CPAWS) supports the reintroduction of Bison to Banff National Park. Here’s why.

In the following letter, Anne-Marie Syslak, Executive Director of Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) Southern Alberta Chapter, is urging us to write to Parks Canada before November 1, 2013, to give our supportive voice to Parks Canada’s plan to reintroduce wild free-roaming plains bison to Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.

We have exciting news to share! Parks Canada is planning to reintroduce wild plains bison to Banff National Park, more than a century after they last roamed the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. We need your help to make sure it happens.

Until November 1st, Parks Canada is inviting you to provide feedback on their draft bison re-introduction plan for Banff. The supportive voices of Canadians from across the country are needed to ensure the plan is approved and well-resourced.

CPAWS supports Parks Canada’s plan to reintroduce wild free-roaming plains bison to Banff National Park as an important step in restoring the park’s ecological integrity. In our comments on the plan, we also made a few recommendations on how we think it could be strengthened. Click here to read our full comment submission.

You can help bring bison back to Banff by writing a brief supportive letter to Parks Canada before November 1st.

Together we can help make this exciting conservation project happen!

Yours in conservation,

Anne-Marie Syslak
Executive Director
CPAWS Southern Alberta Chapter
