Dear pbnb reader,
The plains bison is the largest land mammal in North America. Tens of millions of these iconic animals once roamed across much of North America.
I’m Jared Leto. You may know me as an actor or musician, but like you, I am a WWF Activist. Last summer, I had the opportunity to be up close and personal with bison when I visited Yellowstone National Park.
Right now, Yellowstone National Park is the premiere site for bison restoration in the US. However, there are restrictions in place that force park officials to kill bison when the herd count gets higher than 3,000 and bison leave the park. With your help, I’d like to change that.
Several Native American tribes are working with WWF to help restore bison to native lands. But before the bison can be reintroduced, they must be separated from other wildlife to ensure they are healthy.
Fort Peck tribes in northern Montana have established a quarantine site that is now ready and waiting to host surplus Yellowstone bison. The National Park Service is now evaluating whether to use the site as their preferred alternative location for surplus bison.
Tell the National Park Service you support Fort Peck as the Preferred Alternative and help us contribute to conservation and cultural restoration efforts in North America.
For thousands of years, the plains bison provided food and shelter for tribal communities across the Northern Great Plains. Today, Native Americans have an opportunity to do the same for the bison in return.
By supporting the allocation of Yellowstone bison by the National Park Service you are helping to put healthy bison back on their historic North American lands.
