Elk Island is one of Canada's most fascinating national parks. Originally established as an elk preserve in 1906, the "island" analogy is reinforced by the fact that it is the only completely fenced national park. The park is a sanctuary for 44 species of mammals, including Canada's largest herd of plains bison.
