American Bison

Location: United States

Population: 20,500 Plains bison in conservation herds and an additional 420,000 in commercial herds.

Bison are North America’s largest land mammal. Often referred to as buffalo, bison can weigh up to 2,000 pounds (900 kilograms) and stand around 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall at the shoulder. Despite their massive size, bison are surprisingly agile and can reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour (56 kilometers per hour) when running. These iconic creatures once roamed the continent in enormous herds, playing a crucial role in shaping the landscapes they inhabited. Conservation efforts have helped to protect and preserve bison populations, allowing them to persist as a symbol of North American wildlife.
