After years of dreaming about getting one of the original Americans back out on the prairie where they belong, we’re a big step closer to seeing it happen. In the spring of 2012, 60 pure-strain, wild bison from Yellowstone National Park finally arrived at Fort Peck Indian Reservation. The bison had returned to the Great Plains.
For more than a decade, Earthjustice has been fighting to protect bison in and around Yellowstone National Park. Now as the bison are returning to the ranges of Northeast Montana, we are continuing to fight for this magnificent creature on Indian reservations.
