Buffalo Commons redux

Having already written about the Buffalo Commons work undertaking by the Poppers, I have to frequently ignore new items and publications about them that don't say much that hasn't already been said. But the recent coverage by the Harvard Kennedy School Bulletin seems noteworthy:
Their theoretical idea is approaching reality, they say. Indeed, as the Poppers wrote in a more recent paper: "The issue is no longer whether the Buffalo Commons will happen, but how." Some of it is happening without federal intervention. They cite examples such as the Nature Conservancy buying land to restore buffalo and other native animals and plants and even entrepreneurs like Ted Turner raising buffalo on huge tracts of private property.
