Conference workshop to focus on restoring bison to the northern plains

A workshop, “Bringing Bison Back: America’s Last Big Game Challenge,” is scheduled for March 12, 2012, at the 77th North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference in Atlanta, Ga. It will examine the political, cultural and ecological steps necessary for bison to be restored, managed and valued as a wildlife resource on northeastern Montana’s Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge and other multi-jurisdictional landscapes. The Great Plains of Montana once sustained bison herds that numbered in the millions but like many wildlife species, the bison population was reduced by market hunting and habitat loss.
