Bison return to Banff

Bison in Banff National Park cross the Panther River.

Bison are back in Canada’s oldest national park! After an absence of over 140 years, bison now roam Banff National Park as part of a landmark conservation project. With their return, bison are reclaiming their important ecological and cultural role on the landscape.

Follow the herd! See images and videos, learn about bison and read updates from the field.
