Bison of Yellowstone: Managing An American Icon (No. 102)
First Aired Thursday, May 12, 2005
Once near extinction, the American bison now flourishes. Swift intervention by the American Bison Society and a handful of entrepreneurs tipped the odds back in the bison's favor, and today the species is back in full force. The bison is a conservation success story, a strong symbol of the American West, and a management dilemma. Bison of Yellowstone: Managing an American Icon examines the Yellowstone bison herd over the course of the last century. Produced by Alison Backus for TERRA, distributed by KUSM/MontanaPBS, MSU- Bozeman.
