The Plains Bison are on the verge of extinction and attempts to
repopulate the prairies with them are limited mainly because of
habitat loss. Expansion of farmland, urban development and the
construction of roads restrict their land, forcing the herd farther
and farther north, which increases their risk of starvation. Snow
cover also becomes thicker and lasts longer in the north, making it
more difficult for them to find enough grass to eat. Just Energy
has partnered with the Earth Rangers to launch the Bring Back the
Wild Plains Bison Campaign and help restore their habitat. Click here to learn
more about the Wild Plains Bison campaign.
Just Energy and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment have teamed

larger greening and tree planting campaign at schools across the
GTA next Spring.
