WICHITA, Kansas – The Sedgwick County Zoo has a new female bison.

It brings the herd to three, one male and two females.

The 1 ½ year-old bison was born on Kansas’ Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve and donated to the Zoo by The Nature Conservancy in Kansas.

The Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve’s bison herd is managed cooperatively by the National Park Service and The Nature Conservancy.

The herd started in 2009 with the introduction of 13 animals from Wind Cave National Park.
