Emergency: Help Restore
America’s Wild Bison
Two centuries ago, millions of bison thundered across much of the west. But by 1890 fewer than 25 bison remained in the wild, all in a small corner of Yellowstone National Park.
Defenders of Wildlife is on a mission to right one of our nation’s greatest wildlife wrongs; to fully recover wild bison to parts of the America’s Great Plains. With your past help, we have taken some critical steps towards recovery — but the toughest fights may still lie ahead.
We have an ambitious 10-year plan -- to restore and expand wild bison to eight locations by the year 2022: a population of 5,000 in Yellowstone, two additional populations of at least 1,000, and five additional populations of at least 400 -- and we have strong confidence that this historic bison recovery initiative will be a success!
But we can’t do this alone. Please support Defenders’ historic bison recovery initiative and other urgent efforts to rescue imperiled animals.
Please donate now to support our emergency efforts to keep bison conservation alive -- and protect the wildlife and special places you care about.
