We have the perfect nominee for the coveted position of national mammal. The iconic bison is impeccably qualified to join the bald eagle as a symbol of the United States.
The largest land mammal in the country, our nominee helped shape the Great Plains and the lifestyle of the Native Americans who lived there. Bison have been important for centuries to our history and culture, and today, they live in all 50 states.
The bison is ready for the big leagues. It's an animal we can stand behind as national mammal—but we need your support to make it happen. Please join this historic grassroots campaign: Ask your Representatives in the U.S. House to cosponsor the National Bison Legacy Act.
