bisonWolf: More than a name
Our belief in the life-sustaining link between humans and nature informs all that we do,
starting with our company name. Two keystone species—the bison, recognized for its
strength, and the wolf, known for its speed—need our support to get up and running
toward a healthier tomorrow.
From roaming to barely remaining
Just over a century ago, 20 to 30 million bison peacefully grazed across North America.
Vital to the ecological balance of the Great Plains, these massive, shaggy animals
provided a protective landscape and plentiful food source for other species. But due to
westward expansion and aggressive hunting, by 1889 their number dwindled to just 1091.
Since then, although the bison population has increased, herds are too small to impact
the ecosystem as they historically did. Today, the once powerful, thunderous species has
limited range and is considered “ecologically extinct.”

From dominating to dwindling
Moving west in the 1800s, settlers unknowingly disrupted the delicate relationship
between wolves and their prey. Without their natural food source, these stealthy and
mysterious creatures preyed on livestock, soon to became the prey of humans. Even so,
gray wolves sparsely inhabited Yellowstone National Park at its beginnings in 1872. By the
mid-1900s, intentional extermination nearly wiped them out.
With the absence of these keystone predators, the Yellowstone-Idaho ecosystem shifted.
Coyotes moved in. Elk overpopulated and overgrazed, diminishing some essential plants
and tipping the natural balance between species.
