Public Affairs Officer, Yellowstone National Park
The National Park Service (NPS) is initiating the Yellowstone National Park (YNP) Bison Management Plan / Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to guide management of the park's bison population. The proposed plan will be developed with input from tribes and other federal and state agencies. It will update NPS actions identified in the Interagency Bison Management Plan (IBMP), signed in 2000 by the Secretaries of Agriculture and Interior and the Governor of Montana. The plan will take into consideration management actions likely to occur on lands outside the park in Montana, while acknowledging the NPS does not have jurisdiction or control over actions such as hunting or tolerance for bison beyond the park boundary.
