Take a Tour of Wind River
Buffalo have been absent from the lives of Shoshone and Arapaho people for over 130 years. Now that they are back, it is time to reconnect. ‘Conservation Buffalo’ means they don’t have cattle genetics, and are treated like other wild animals. See photos, watch videos, and find resources for research and learning.
