Why are people using birth control on the bison on Catalina Island?



  1. 0 Votes

    Environmental biologists are attempting to reduce the herd-size of bison in Catalinas pastoral zones.  Herd-size tends to increase by about 15% during mating season.  Too-large herds damage the environment, over-graze, and make the bison population less healthy.  A smaller population means better food and health for the herd as a whole.  Biologist use chemical innoculations in order to reduce the number of calves born to female bison.
