Helen Panter is a Public Outreach Education Officer with Parks Canada in Wood Buffalo National Park, Canada’s largest park, located in the southern Northwest Territories.
Helen has held this role for the last 12 years describing it as her “dream job to be able to live and work in such a beautiful and special place”.
The creation of Wood Buffalo National Park in 1922 near the border between Alberta and the Northwest Territories has helped to prevent the extinction of Arctic Species at Risk like the whooping crane and wood buffalo for which the park was named.
