The American bison is making a historic comeback on Montana’s prairie. We need your help in asking the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to support the restoration of bison and Montana's wildlife.
American Prairie Reserve is working to save the rapidly disappearing shortgrass prairie ecosystem. Central to that mission is the restoration of a large population of plains bison, which are now gradually making a comeback after being absent from the land for more than 100 years. But for the herd to reach its full potential, we are asking the federal and state government to provide access for bison to graze some public lands where we have grazing privileges.

The BLM has advanced American Prairie’s request to graze bison on some public lands in Phillips County. The BLM’s initial findings conclude that the proposed action will not have a significant environmental impact on the land and “will benefit local wildlife, improve land and water quality, and create new local jobs, all without impacting the value of the ranching economy.”
