Exploring Badlands National Park

Animals in South Dakota’s 244,000 protected acres of Badlands National Park include 39 mammal species, 9 reptile species, 6 amphibian species, 206 bird species, and 69 butterfly species.

Filmmaker Matt Brass documents some of them (including bison and bighorn sheep) in this landscape-filled film short, Badlands National Park, one in a series on nature and travel.
