The World Wildlife Foundation shared some breathtaking video of a herd of bison running into a 22,000 acre expansion in their home at Badlands National Park in South Dakota. 

“Bison are North America’s largest and most iconic mammal, and WWF is thrilled to be part of an effort to create the second largest herd in the National Park system,” said Martha Kauffman, managing director of World Wildlife Fund’s Northern Great Plains program. “The project has touched the imaginations of people across the US, and the matching dollars that WWF has provided wouldn’t have been possible without the generosity of our supporters.”

There are now more than 80,000 acres for the bison to roam and close to 12,000 of these majestic creatures call the space home. 

According to a release, WWF is working to establish five bison herds of at least 1,000 individuals each in the Northern Great Plains to increase the genetic health of this species.
