60 million bison roamed the grasslands from Canada to Mexico, California to the east coast before European arrival. By 1882, less than 100 bison were left due to exploitation and a disregard for the deep seeded relationship between tribes and bison. With intense efforts to restore the bison across the US, the National Bison Range currently is home to about 350 of the 500,000 total bison in the US. What a picture of what we as a species can do to the other animals we share this planet with when the consequences of our actions and our connectivity with other species are ignored.
