Thanks to numerous conservation efforts, the American Bison is no longer at the brink of extinction like it was just a century ago. There are approximately 500,000 Bison in North America, the majority of which are raised on ranches for their meat and hides. Another percentage of these are in private ownership or on wildlife refuges to protect them. Most estimate about 15,000 Bison remain truly ‘wild’, roaming the open plains of North America.
The IUCN’s 2008 assessment of American Bison estimated a count of about 11,250 mature bison in wild free-ranging and semi-free-ranging populations, making this species listed as near threatened in North America.
