North American Bison Registry
The National Bison Association created the North American Bison Registry to catalog the genetics of all bison in North America. The last two "pure" herds that we know don't have any cow DNA is the Yellowstone herd, and the Texas State Herd in Caprock Canyon State Park halfway between Amarillo and Lubbock, Texas. With an estimated 340,000 bison remaining in the United States, the genetic health of an animal that is the Official Animal of the United States is critically important. Small bison ranchers are spread across the country, and have all expressed their support for a centralized genetic database.
The NABR is registering herds and is presenting the ranchers with serialized signs to hang on their fences; they contacted us and asked us to design their logos and signs based on our previous work for the Texas Bison Association and various bison ranches across Texas.
