The bison is one of 300 endangered species in Mexico and fundamental for the recovery of the Chihuahan Desert grasslands according to the director of the El Uno Ecological Reserve. Bison are an essential part of the ecosystem in supporting populations of other species in the reserve. Bison break the ground with their step and allow plants to grow, promote water filtration and keep the grass at a height perfect for other species like the prairie dog to thrive. As part of the five-year old Bison Reintroduction Project by The Nature Conservancy, NGOs, universities and government agencies, eight more adult bison, five females and three males, just arrived from New Mexico and were released in Janos, totalling now 61 bison in the reserve.

A car is parked on a hillside with a closed coal mine sitting in the distance on the grasslands of Right Ujumchin Banner in the northern Chinese region of Inner Mongolia, September 4, 2012. The mine was closed following protests by ethnic Mongols last year over destruction of their traditional grazing lands by open cast coal mining. As China's largest coal producer, Inner Mongolia has posted rapid economic growth, but the wealth has been unevenly distributed and open-cast mining has left scars on the landscape. Last year, some of the Mongol people who make up around one-fifth of its 25 million population protested against the destruction of grazing lands by mining.Picture taken September 4, 2012.
