Sustainability after extinction
On last animals and future bison

Many endangered species are being saved from extinction, only to end up stuck in small population pools that are deemed sustainable but not much more expandable. This essay discusses the biological and theoretical issues of animals that live near extinction. Specifically the fate of the North American plains bison is examined as an example of how the animal is 'rewilded' literally and fictionally today after its near extinction in the nineteenth century.
