Success Stories
April, 2014 - A Montana court finally determined that the wild bison of Yellowstone, an animal that has roamed the continent for millennia, are indeed wild animals. This legal distinction has great value for the future of bison restoration.
How You Can Help
Each year, as wild bison wander beyond the borders of Yellowstone National Park in search of food, Montana livestock officials demand that these iconic animals be rounded up and shipped to slaughter houses to keep them out of Montana and to keep their numbers low.
