Alberta bison roam a new home in Montana – The American Prairie Foundation

After more than 100 years of trying to preserve the bison in North America, conservationists are relocating 70 of the species from Canada to their ancestral home in Montana – the second such move in three years.

The plains bison – 35 female and 35 male – come from Elk Island National Park in Alberta, where herds of the animals have been raised in conservation since the species faced near global extinction in the early 20th century.
