The American Bisons were nearly sent to extinction due to mass slaughter and hunting, but their resurgence is thanks to the conservation efforts which began in the 20th century.
Something more beautiful than their protection happened in Illinois when a baby Bison was born nearly after two centuries.
For some people, it was not a very big deal, but according to Bill Kleiman, the director of animal preservation group Illinois, the birth was historical.
Let us look and learn about the newly born Bison.
Bisons nearly came to the verge of extinction in 1900 due to mass slaughter and hunting.
Illinois has not seen the birth of Bison for about 200 years, and now the birth of the baby is surely a standpoint in history.
30 Bisons were pregnant in the preservation center, but they were expected to deliver the baby by May.
There are no reports whether the born Bison is male or female because the staff saw the animal through binoculars.
According to Kleiman, workers will open an additional 1000 acres for Bisons in the northern area of grasslands.
Aggressive conservation of Bisons has increased their population. Now the number of Bisons in America is nearly 500,000.
More Bisons will be brought to the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie as soon as the land for their roaming increase.
That's all, folks!
