Banff National Park welcomes first bison calves in 140 years

A national park in Canada has welcomed some newcomers this year - three new bison babies. The trio were born in the backcountry of Banff National Park in the western province of Alberta, the first bison conceived in the park in 140 years. Bison were only recently reintroduced to the region and so conservation staff have dubbed the newborns the "Made in Banff" bison babies. A herd of 16 plains bison, including 10 pregnant females, were successfully reintroduced to the park in February 2017, and the first calves born in the park in April of that year are now yearlings. Bison tend to return to the same areas to calve each spring, according to park conservation staff.
