A small herd of Buffalo graze near the Sage Creek campground in the Badlands National Park outside of Wall, South Dakota on April 19, 2018. Buffalo or Bison are one of the most sacred animals to the Lakota people and formerly their lifestyle depended on them. Prior to European settlement, about 30 million bison inhabited North America. But by the late 19th century, fewer than 1,000 could be found on the continent, with only a handful of wild bison left in the American West. Badlands National Park is among a handful of organizations trying to restore the herd population. REUTERS/Stephanie Keith
