When National Park Warden Ben Matthews transfers from Cape Breton Highlands to Wood Buffalo, he lands in the middle of a controversial proposal to slaughter the park’s entire bison population. Frustrated by Park’s bureaucracy and the devious efforts of the pro-slaughter camp, Ben and Kate Jones reunite to uncover the truth about the park’s bison and find a missing trapper who could influence the final outcome.
Set in Canada’s largest national park and the second largest national park in the world, Wood Buffalo is a compelling story about a fight to save the park’s bison and address some of the many conflicting forces threatening our special places.
