2. National Bison RangeMoiese The National Bison Range is a National Wildlife Refuge located in western Montana established in 1908 to provide a sanctuary for the American bison. The NBR is one of the oldest National Wildlife Refuges in the United States. The size of the bison herd at the NBR is relatively small, numbering between 350 and 500 individuals. The initial herd of American bison was provided by organizations such as the American Bison Society, and today the refuge serves as the central point for bison research in the United States. The NBR consists of approximately 18,800 acres and is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Other nearby National Wildlife Refuges are managed as parts of the National Bison Range Complex and include the Lost Trail, Ninepipe, Pablo and the Swan River National Wildlife Ref...

EL PASO OWLS, THREE KINGFISHERS & RICHLAND CREEK WATER
Owls Underground Some owls in El Paso have a fancy new home, complete with a surveillance system, which gives biologists a bird’s-eye view of owl life.
Parks & Wildlife People: Richland Creek Team Texans are faced with the problem of supplying water to a growing population while avoiding adverse impacts to our habitat. Texas Park and Wildlife partnered with the Tarrant County Regional Water District to provide a reliable water supply to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex while protecting the state's natural resources.
Producer’s Favorites: Oasis of the Kingfisher If you been around the water in Texas you may have seen a belted kingfisher diving for small fish. The odds are long that you would see the other two kinds of kingfishers found in North America in the exact same location. But in 2001 that's what happened to video producer Lee Smith at one of his favorite places in Texas.
