Bison recovery program

Project location:


Sub-focus area:


AES México implemented a comprehensive reintroduction program of the American bison into their former habitat in Mexico where they are in danger of extinction. The program consists of creating a pure-breed conservation herd in the country, which will help to restore the ecological balance in this habitat bordering Mexico and the United States.


The program began in 2020 with 19 American bison and the herd has grown 50% in less than one year
