This is on a scale beyond anything that had been done in the U.S., certainly for wildlife.

A Park The Size Of Connecticut Is Being Carved Out Of The Great Plains | Co.Exist: World changing ideas and innovation

Despite missing the golden era of park creation in the U.S. from the 1800s to the 1950s, the Great Plains is now home to an unprecedented effort that is piecing together one of the largest parks in U.S. history. Once completed, the American Prairie Reserve will contain 500,000 private acres alongside roughly three million acres of public land forming a nearly unbroken expanse of pristine grasslands from Montana to Canada.

If it comes to pass, the American Prairie Reserve will enter the records books as one of the world’s largest wildlife reserves, only slightly smaller than the state of Connecticut, and—even more remarkable—pieced together almost entirely with private money.
