successional forest, grouse habitat would decline.”

Ranching Wildlife

North America

With approximately two million acres of personal and ranch land, Ted Turner is the largest individual landholder in North America. Turner lands are innovatively managed and work to partner economic viability with ecological sustainability. All Turner ranches operate as working businesses, relying on bison and outfitting as principal enterprises. In addition, Turner ranches support many progressive environmental projects including water resource management, reforestation and the reintroduction of native species to the land. Turner Enterprises also manages over 45,000 head of bison across the various Turner ranches.
