wood bison restoring

blog_illl214-11

美洲森林野牛是美國阿拉斯加及加拿大特有的物種,但上個世紀阿拉斯加的野牛被人類過分獵殺後滅絕。保育團體數年前從加拿大引入美洲森林野牛,並於近日把100頭送往阿拉斯加野放,希望能彌補人類過往的錯。保育員會觀察一段時間,確保牠們能適應野外生活。

wood bisons are native to south-central alaska and canada. however, by 1900s all bisons had disappeared from alaska due to human hunting. in 2008, US imported 53 wood bison from canada, and released around 100 of them back to alaska, hoping to go back in time to make the wrong right. they would be watching the bison for a while after the restoration to make sure they will do fine in the wild.
