About Project

Millions of Buffalo once roamed the Great Plains of North America and were integral to the ecosystem. In the late 1800s, they were almost completely annihilated. In 2016, After an absence of more than 130 years, the first Buffalo returned to the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. Led by Jason Baldes of the Eastern Shoshone Tribe, conservation Buffalo are beginning to once again roam their ancestral lands. This website tells their story and paves the way for their future.
