General Description Released expected date February 2012.
Though far less prominent than the plains-dwelling North American Bison, almost 200,000 Wood Bison once prospered in the woodlands of the Canadian West, before being reduced to mere hundreds by overhunting and human encroachment at the turn of the twentieth century. The Wood Bison is uniquely Canadian, as it is only in Canada that it can be found living naturally in the wild.
Thanks to the tireless work of Parks Canada in Wood Buffalo and Elk Island National Parks, the nearly extinct Wood Bison population has bounced back to more than 10,000 strong.
