The article reports on the preservation of pure bison by the American Prairie Foundation and World Wildlife Fund in north-central of Montana. Bisons are proved to be genetically pure herds declaring them cattle hybrid-free. The mission of prairie conservationists is to create and manage a prairie-based wildlife reserve that, when combined with public lands already devoted to wildlife, will protect a unique natural habitat, provide lasting economic benefits, and improve public access to and enjoyment of the prairie landscape.
