Reintroducing the Wood Bison to Alaska

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published a special rule this week that will help clear the way to reintroduce the extirpated wood bison into their historic range in Alaska. Currently, the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is home to the only wood bison herd in the United States. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center partnered with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game on the Wood Bison Restoration Project, and are prepared to reintroduce wood bison, the largest mammal in North America, to interior Alaska more than a century after they were driven from the state.
