Visit http://bit.ly/1gcvQDD to learn more about NWF's bison work.

After more than a century's absence, wild, genetically pure bison have returned to tribal lands on the Great Plains in a homecoming that reunites Native Americans with the iconic species that was a fundamental part of their culture and the prairie ecosystem.
Sixty-three bison from Yellowstone National Park were trucked 500 miles to Fort Peck in Montana's far northeastern corner. Tribal members from Fort Peck and Fort Belknap hosted Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer and representatives of the National Wildlife Federation and Defenders of Wildlife to celebrate the animals' prairie homecoming on Wednesday.

National Wildlife Federation works on protecting wildlife and wild places for our children's future. To learn more go to http://bit.ly/1366fHf
