We Did It!
President Barack Obama has signed the National Bison Legacy Act naming bison as our official National Mammal.
What a great milestone for an animal that has played a central role in America's history and culture, that helped shape the Great Plains and the lifestyle of Native Americans, and that, today, lives in all 50 states.
Thank you for all you've done to make this a reality.
Of course, our work isn't complete. We believe this great achievement is also a wonderful opportunity to encourage our leaders to go further in their support of our newly minted national mammal. In the coming weeks and months, we'll follow up with more on what you can do to encourage such action.
In the meantime, enjoy the great victory you helped achieve for this iconic species.
