How A Small Alberta National Park Is Helping Save The World's Bison

By: Michael Hingston

It’s a brisk, cloudy morning in February in a remote valley on the eastern edge of Banff National Park. Five modified shipping containers sit on the ground, vibrating. Inside are groups of plains bison—three or four to a container, not quite shoulder to shoulder, 16 animals in all. The bison each have a numbered tag attached to one ear, a special collar around their necks, and lengths of rubber hose duct-taped to their horns to protect one another from accidental gougings.
