National Bison Foundation

Preserve their History. Foster their Future.

In recent years the National Buffalo Foundation’s (NBF) Board of Directors have focused on restructuring the organization and on the expansion of its financial resources. This new focus affords the Foundation to support influential projects that positively impact the future of the bison.

NBF has gifted a diversity of sponsorships and grants that support the Foundation’s mission and vision. Some of the projects are depicted in the below pictorial.

Among the foundation’s current projects is the Bison Exhibit – a traveling exhibit exploring the past, present and future of this great North American animal. Learn more at www.bisonexhibit.org.

In 2016, the NABR adopted the following disclaimer regarding modern bison genetics to educate media sources that cite misinformation on this issue:

The positions and opinions reflected in this article are not necessarily shared by the North American Bison Registry. Whereas the NABR charges itself with discovering and recording bison heritage, the inclusion of all remnant bison genetics is our mission to ensure that the future of bison conservation is secure. Until it is proven that absolute purity is significant, and can be indisputably identified, the NABR includes all post-bottleneck bison for their genetic contribution, but excludes introgression, i.e. hybrids, by process of genetic testing and ethical management. The NABR is made up of scientists, veterinarians, advisors and bison ranchers who are dedicated to: “Preserving the Heritage of American Bison”.
