The Bison Are Back Home!

"These animals were the center of our universe. They were so important to us that we regarded them as family. We couldn't have survived without them." says Stoney Anketell, on the Ft. Peck Indian Reservation Tribal Board of the mighty bison that once roamed the Great Plains of Montana.

Yellowstone National Park was the last haven for wild buffalo in the late 19th century. However, the head count went from 30 million down to 25 individuals at it's lowest. They did repopulate, but only here.

This was the only environment they occupied - until now!

In the spring of 2012 a very historic event occurred. About 60 of the last wild bison were moved from Yellowstone National Park region up to Northeastern Montana up to the Great Plains where bison formerly roamed onto the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.

Now they are repopulating their ancestral plains!

For more than 10 years Earthjustice, an organization of lawyers dedicated to fighting for the environment, has fought and won to protect bison near Yellowstone National Park. Now they are fighting in the Montana Supreme Court to protect bison on Indian Reservations.

Go Earthjustice!
