The Great American Bison is making a comeback

The Great American Bison is making a comeback due to a unique collaboration, according to the National Bison Association.

“We work very closely with tribal entities, who are also restoring bison to their tribal lands for commercial and cultural reasons, as well as conservationists. We work with public agencies, public herd managers, conservation groups, and we’re all collectively restoring the species back to its native landscape here in North America,” said Jim Matheson.

Bison were never domesticated, which allows them to remain regenerative by nature. That is why their meat contained little to no fat, making them a nutrient-dense protein.

The bison population topped 30 million in the late 19th century but was hunted to near extinction. Today, there are more than 400,000 head across the U.S.
