American Bison Society

BISON ON THE EDGE
October 28 to November 1 2019
 Santa Fe, NM

                 Join us for a week of discussions, workshops, and events                                                   focused on bison, their cultural role,                                         and their restoration across North America

 

The American Bison Society (ABS) established by the Director of the New York Zoological Society, William Hornaday
with the support of U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, Canadian Governor Earl Grey and many other notable characters
had for the mission “preservation and increase of the American Bison".

 

In 2006, the Society was re-established by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and met again to continue the passion of 
these pioneers to save the wild bison from extinction. 110 years since ABS was established important progress has been 
made to restore wild bison to large landscape in Canada and USA  using a variety of strategies and approaches.
It is now time to reconvene and explore the successes and challenges for bison ecological restoration across North America.


For the first time in its history the ABS will meet in the Southwest.
Bison enthusiasts, tribes, managers, producers, advocates, philanthropists, and artists
 are invited to share experiences and strategies to guide future progress
toward the ecological restoration of wood and plains bison.
