Today it is estimated that there are 350,000 bison alive in America. Many of them are part of privately owned herds. At one time there were 60 to 100 million, and the population had dwindled to as low as 750 in 1890.
According to the 2008 assessment by the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List, there are about 30,000 American Bison in conservation herds and about 500,000 in commercial herds on ranches. Out of the former, about half are truly free-ranging. The wild population is considered stable and large enough for merely a ‘near threatened’ species status.
