Imagine America's Serengeti: Building the Largest Wildlife Reserve in the Continental United States
North America's grasslands, once teeming with wildlife, awed and inspired Lewis and Clark, artists George Caitlin and Karl Bodmer, and other early American travelers. Today an extraordinary Montana-based project is described by National Geographic as “one of the most ambitious conservation efforts in American history.” With a goal of reestablishing a wildlife phenomenon of almost unimaginable size, American Prairie Reserve is assembling a wildlife complex the size of Connecticut that is open to the public and is a gift of immeasurable value for the global community and future generations.
