WSF Grant-in-Aid Update - Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge California Bighorn Sheep Recovery (OR)
California bighorn sheep (BHS), an iconic species native to Oregon and the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge (NAR), were extirpated from Oregon by 1912. The species was successfully reintroduced in 1954 when 20 sheep were translocated to the NAR from Williams Lake, British Columbia. After re-introduction and establishment, the NAR herd was robust enough to translocate bighorn sheep to other areas in and around Oregon.
