Five years ago my wife and I along with some relatives took a cruise out of Vancouver to Alaska. Just prior to that week I read an article about Alaska re-introducing the woods bison back in the state from where they had been discovered in Alberta, Canada back in 1957! I had to arrange to see some! As luck would have it there was a land portion via bus. The bus tour's first stop was the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center where they had a herd of wood buffalo.
