Canadian wood buffaloes are doing well in Siberia
The first re-acclimatized Canadian wood buffaloes in the Republic of Sakha-Yakutia (Siberia/Russia), on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
They were transferred from Edmonton Elk Island National Park to Yakutia in April 2006. As reported, wood buffaloes are doing pretty good in the biggest Siberian region. Now 26 species are 4 year old and have given birth to 13 calves - 6 in 2008 and 7 this year. This is an unique Yakutian-Canadian scientific experiment.
