These few images depict the last few days of the wood bison release into the wilds of Alaska. One hundred animals were flown from the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to Shageluk by Hercules in modified shipping containers and then into holding pen for a few days. Followed up by an amazing crossing of the Innoko River to their new home.
