They are ecologically important to restore and the consumers of meat have a chance to be part of bison conservation and ecological restoration when they shop. We know this may seem oxymoronic, but each time you purchase bison you help the sustained existence of a bison herd somewhere. This is the essence of commerce-based conservation as opposed to preservation that relies on donations. We suggest that a tradition of buying bison from your local or internet retailer or restaurant, on whatever schedule you can, represents doing your part in restoring American bison to North America. It also tastes great and is a very healthful red meat choice. So.. Healthy begets healthy. Healthy planet – healthy you – and all you have to do is participate in the economy of it all. This is a win-win, and it’s true.
