Bison Reintroduction to Banff

In January, the Juniper hosted a very important gathering.  Marie-Eve Merchand, the Bison Belong Coordinator, presented Blake Richards, MP, with 3000 postcards from Canadians, internationals, and the local Banff community.  The campaign began in 2010 with the intention to reintroduce wild bison back into Banff National Park.

The great news is that all of those who contributed were heard loud and clear.  The government is going to provide 6.4 million dollars over the next five years to reintroduce bison back into Banff National Park. Click for further details.
