USNPS transfers bison herd to Sicangu Lakota tribe

WASHINGTON – Department of the Interior officials today joined leaders from the Sicangu Lakota (Rosebud Sioux) Nation and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) as 100 wild bison from nearby national parks were released onto nearly 28,000 acres of native grasslands on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota.


The bison are the initial transfer, under the 2020 Bison Conservation Initiative, from DOI herds to the Wolakota Buffalo Range that will eventually be the nation’s largest tribally managed herd and home to 1,500 bison.
