Point 2 of 8 Scenic route meets elk restoration.

In the late 1800’s the population of elk was destroyed by over-harvesting and destruction of their environment.  In 1996, the Ontario government and partners announced their support, and creation of The Plan for the Restoration of Elk in Ontario.  In January of 2000, the first of two herds of Elk from Elk Island National Park in Alberta were shipped to Bancroft, scheduled to be released back into the wild and re-populate the area. The second release was a year later in January 2001, when 50 more were released. Since that time, the once endangered elk’s population has grown and flourished. So much so, that the first elk hunt was allowed in September of 2011.
