Comments Off on Wild bison return to Canada’s Banff National Park for the first time in 140 years

Wild bison are coming home to Canada’s Banff National Park for the first time in roughly 140 years. Although bison were common sights in the Canadian landscape with a population that numbered in the millions in the early 1800s, these huge and herbivorous mammals nearly disappeared by the end of the 19th century as a result of hunting. Now 16 bison are back at Banff as part of a carefully planned conservation effort to re-establish the species within the area’s ecosystem. With any luck, the herd’s numbers will be growing soon: many of the transferred bisons are pregnant.

Tribal leaders of the Native American Nez Perce tribe have asked to revive the practice of hunting bison within Yellowstone National Park . Subsistence hunting in the 18th and 19th century almost drove the species to extinction, but today remnants of the once great population live within the national park that spans Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, and it is illegal to hunt them.

Australian architectural firm PTW Architects designed a glistening golden stadium for the upcoming 2015 All-Africa Games taking place in Republic of the Congo. Congruent with its brassy exterior, the Brazzaville stadium will be built with ultra-modern sports facilities along with quite a few ecological features. According to the architects, the shiny golden facade of the stadium was inspired by the “sun’s rays, as a symbolic interpretation of the longevity of the games and the excitement and colour that competition brings to the African countries participating in the event.” Read the rest of PTW Architects Unveil Glittering Gold Brazzaville Stadium Design for the 2015 All-Africa Games Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: 2015 , All African Games , Architecture , Brazzaville Stadium , Democratic Republic of Congo , golden stadium , modern stadium design , ptw architects , sports facilities in africa , stadium design , urban architecture
