Be a Bison’s Buddy – Sponsor the Bison Today!

Did you know that the Minnesota Zoo is collaborating with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reintroduce bison to Minnesota’s state parks? A herd of genetically pure bison is being managed jointly at the Zoo and Blue Mounds State Park, giving visitors the opportunity to see bison with the same characteristics that have ensured their survival—and shaped the ecology of the Great Plains—for thousands of years. Learn more about the bison.
