Wood Bison Arrive in Fairbanks

Alaska Department of Fish and Game
The young wood bison are temporarily staying at the U.A.F. Large Animal Research Station in Fairbanks.

More wood bison have been imported from Canada to Alaska as part of a decades long effort to restore the animal’s population it the state. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, some of the young animals will be added to a herd the state has established in Western Alaska.
