Bison population remains stable in Wood Buffalo National Park

CBC North – The bison in the country’s largest national park appear to be thriving after the population reached a low point about 10 years ago. Staff and community representatives counted about 4,000 of the animals in a recent aerial survey of Wood Buffalo National Park, which straddles the Alberta-N.W.T. border. Over the last several years, the numbers have been gradually increasing and now appear to be stable, despite the natural challenges of wolf predation and diseases such as anthrax, brucellosis and tuberculosis.
