Museum Working To Grow Bison Population

(Jamestown, ND) — The National Buffalo Museum in Jamestown is working to increase the bison population in North Dakota. The American Bison was common in the state over 150 years ago, but was nearly hunted to extinction. However, they’ve been making a comeback since then, and the museum takes care of two herds of wild bison to hopefully continue this trend. The animals were first brought to the Jamestown area in the 1990s, and the museum hopes the city will become known for its bison conservation efforts.
