African Buffalo Information:The American buffalo, also known as the bison, is a species of large, shaggy-haired bovine that once roamed the grasslands of North America. It is one of the most iconic animals of the United States, and is a symbol of strength and resilience. The American buffalo was an integral part of the lives of Native American tribes, providing them with food, shelter, and clothing. The buffalo was so important to the tribes that many of their rituals involved buffalo symbols.
The buffalo was hunted to near extinction during the 19th century. The population plummeted from an estimated 60 million to less than 1,000 by the early 20th century. This was due to over-hunting and habitat destruction due to the expansion of the railroads and the development of towns and ranches. However, the American buffalo has made a remarkable comeback. Today, the estimated population is more than 500,000, with the majority living on public lands and in private preserves. The buffalo is now considered a species of least concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
