    @Ranchlands oversees the Zapata Ranch for The Nature Conservancy with the goals of maintaining and enhancing the health of the ecosystem, economic viability and community dynamics. While nature and predators (including humans) naturally kept the bison herds at sustainable numbers in the past, today @ranchlands is responsible for keeping the appropriate number of animals on the land to prevent it from being overstocked while allowing the natural disturbance of grazing. Each year during bison works, we remove an agreed upon number of bison to join other growing conservation or domestic herds in the United States.Photo by @mdelormephoto #ranchlands @co_nature

    Over fourteen years of management, @ranchlands, the Conservancys key partner, has learned how to bring the entire bison herd into the facility with a minimal stress level. It will take our team of ranchers, @nature_org staff, and partner scientists five long days from sunup to sundown to bring each animal through. The bison receive their vet care and microchip and are released back to pasture soon after.Photo by @madelinejorden #ranchlands @co_nature

    This coming week @ranchlands will take over our account to cover their annual Bison round up! The Nature Conservancys Zapata Ranch is home to a conservation herd of 2,000 wild bison which require annual handling in order to maintain range health and bison herd health. One of the main objectives of this year''s round up is to increase the breeding bull portion of the herd. ...................................................
