66 – Aww, My First Bison

You know how the old saying goes; “When in Rome, grab the camera and go capture some images of endangered wildlife.”  The wood bison, North America’s largest land mammal,  was reaffirmed as threatened in 2000, despite growth in Canada from a population of 200 in 1957 to over 3000 by that time thanks to intricate recovery programs.  It is estimated that there was once over 168 000 wood bison in Canada.
