by on March 13, 2015

Happy 102nd, Elk Island National Park!

A year ago, this incredible accomplishment was celebrated, as tweeted below. Since the buzz has been quiet this year, I thought I’d take a moment to wish Elk Island continued success in having one of the most celebrated national parks in the world, especially when it comes to wildlife conservation. It’s well known their conservation efforts have been carried out in several areas of the globe and have resulted in great success when re-introducing or maintaining wildlife populations!

I wrote about their 101st birthday (anniversary?) last year ! If you’d also like to see more of my Elk Island specific posts and galleries, please check them out below:

This national park should be on your must-see list! Stay tuned as there are many more adventures from Elk Island to be shared, past, present and future with many photos to match!
