AWA News Release: Ecological Integrity May be the Loser in New Banff Park Management Plan

November 24, 2009

The primary mandate for Banff National Park – managing to maintain the park’s ecological integrity – looks like receiving short thrift if a proposed new management plan goes ahead unchanged. Instead, a shift towards maximizing the “visitor experience” receives a much higher profile throughout the new draft plan.

If I were asked to illustrate a scene of utter serenity and peace, I would choose a picture of a mother grizzly wandering across flower-covered slopes with two small cubs gamboling at her heels. This is truly a part of the deep tranquility that is the wilderness hallmark.
