In the Fall of 2022, Tanka Fund worked with @TheNatureConservancy to release 88 buffalo (aka Tatanka, American Buffalo, and American Bison) back to Native lands and in the care of Native American buffalo caretakers - across 10 different native buffalo projects.

Did you know that the buffalo is a keystone species that helps create habitat on the Great Plains for many different species, including grassland birds and even many plant species. As the buffalo forage, they aerate the soil with their hooves, which aids in plant growth, and disperse native seeds, helping to maintain a healthy and balanced ecosystem.

Here are some of the highlights from the buffalo release and interviews with some of our Native American buffalo caretakers.

Tanka Fund continues to drive positive impact on the lands, lives, and economy of Native Americans and the buffalo through meaningful projects that also benefit the larger US land, lives, and economy.

Join us and donate today to support Native American buffalo caretakers and the critical work being done to bring back the buffalo and fight climate change.
