    History

    Overhunting in the 1800s led to Bison being endangered, their numbers dropping from tens of millions into the hundreds. However, intense conservation efforts have brought them back from the brink, and there are now over 20,000 wild Bison in North America, with at least five herds numbering over 1000 animals. Even though no longer in decline, Bison are still considered Near Threatened because all the animals reside in managed conservation areas, and they are dependent on government and management philosophies for continued progress. Herd restoration continues to be the goal of both government and community-based groups.

    • Recommended Age: 5+
    • Size in cm: 20.25 W x 25.5 H
    Despite once numbering around 50 million, the bison is virtually extinct in the wild. Those remaining roam in small herds within boundaries of national parks.
