Saving the buffalo
Saving the Buffalo explores the astonishing fate of these huge animals. There is no simple answer to their near extinction. The interplay of natural forces and people, both Native Americans and settlers, played a critical role in the story of this American symbol.
Many thousands of buffalo roamed the Great Plains for centuries. The first Native Americans had more than 100 uses for the buffalo, but only killed as many as they needed.

|display_description||In 1800, the buffalo was the most common large land animal in North America. By 1900, fewer than 1,000 remained. There is not a single cause of the buffalo's near extinction, but such things as the introduction of the horse to the Plains Indians, wagon trains across the prairie, railroads, hunters, etc. were major factors. This is the story of how the early conservationist movement helped to save and restore this American icon.|
