Bison Act as Linchpin of Healthy Ecosystem

A feature in The Washington Post highlights the key role that bison play in a healthy ecosystem. Grazing bison are pivotal in spurring plant growth, and numerous other species benefit from the bison trampling, grazing, and fertilizing. The InterTribal Buffalo Council, a coalition working to restore the animal on tribal lands, recognizes them as a keystone species that promotes biodiversity and healthy ecosystems that in turn help mitigate climate change.
