Take Action for Bison
The American Prairie Reserve (APR) has a goal to become the largest nature reserve in the continental United States. And they’ve worked hard to establish a place for native animals. They’ve even partnered with Defenders on bison and prairie dog habitat restoration projects.
But today, APR’s bison herd – the largest bison conservation herd without cattle genes in the Great Plains – has run out of room. Although APR has stitched together almost 400,000 acres of private and leased public land for bison and wildlife restoration, they only have approval to graze bison on a small percentage of them.
Right now we have a chance to convince the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) - the managers of the leased public lands - to allow expanded bison grazing.
Tell the BLM to expand bison grazing authorization and restore this important prairie species to more of its historic range!
