In 1999, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) published Ecoregional Planning in the northern Great Plains Steppe, which, for the first time, pinpointed specific, critical areas of the northern Great Plains that were the most viable for conserving the existing diversity of plants and animals. In June 2001, The Prairie Foundation was officially formed and, for its first five years, WWF provided on-the-ground scientific support. This included conducting inventories (plants, streams, birds and wildlife) and wildlife migration studies, monitoring and protecting prairie dogs, reintroducing bison, restoring streams and riparian areas. Today, American Prairie is a freestanding Montana-based nonprofit with the specific mission to piece together land which will form a large-scale 3.2million acre reserve. Their approach is three-fold; acquire habitat, restore wildlife, and share the place with people.
