From the National Park Service

Has the Interagency Bison Management Plan (IBMP) been successful at accomplishing its goals?

  • Yes, since the Record of Decision for the IBMP was signed in December of 2000, the average annual abundance of Yellowstone bison has been about 3,940. The State of Montana has enhanced the conservation of bison by enlarging the area where they are tolerated north and west of Yellowstone National Park during winter and spring.
  • In addition, there have been no incidents of Yellowstone bison infecting cattle with brucellosis, while more than 20 incidents of elk infecting cattle have occurred in the greater Yellowstone area since 2002.
