- •The prairie ecosystem, unique to North America, is an important part of our natural heritage
- •Only 1% of the original prairie land remains -- 99% of prairies are gone
- •Because so little of their native habitat remains, many prairie plants and animal are very rare, endangered or extinct
- •There is still lots to learn about the prairie ecosystem and how it is impacted by natural processes
- •The prairie is home to many kinds of beautiful flowers and hardy grasses; some prairie species may have important uses for science
- •Millions and millions of bison used to roam the prairie; they are America's largest land mammal
