A number of conservationists saved the buffalo from extinction in the late 19th century by forming and protecting of remnant wild herds of plains bison in the United States. Sizeable herds were moved to Canada beginning in 1909, where they interbred with northern wood bison. The recovery of the bison has been slow, as disease and management issues made for a problematic 20th century. Now considered a near-threatened species, there are two free-ranging herds of plains bison and 10 wild populations of wood bison in Canada. Meanwhile, commercial buffalo farming has seen massive growth, with hundreds of thousands of animals providing products for consumers.
