Conserving Bison in Indiana. Yes, Indiana.
Nature Conservancy - Science
SEPTEMBER 26, 2016
This fall, the shaggy beasts will be reintroduced to Kankakee Sands , a Nature Conservancy preserve in southern Indiana. Historically, bison roamed the Indiana prairie, although likely in small, residential herds in contrast to the huge, migratory bison of the Great Plains. Native habitat hasn’t fared much better in the state: More than 99 percent of Indiana’s prairies have been lost to agriculture, development and lack of healthy fire.
