(Western) Flock's Nesting Grounds in Canada
This map of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba shows the boundary of Wood Buffalo National Park. The park covers 27,842 sqare miles! Established in 1922, it is Canada's largest national park. At that time, no one even knew it was the nesting ground for the world's only naturally occurring population of migratory Whooping cranes. The red area is the general location of the Whooping crane nesting area. The nesting area spans the Alberta/Northwest Territories border. It includes, but is not restricted to, Wood Buffalo National Park.
