“Wapiti is the Shawnee term for the elk meaning ‘white rump’. It is a term that is still widely used today and adds a bit of romance to a truly regal animal. Once spread from ocean to ocean and border in the lower 48 states, they are once again being reestablished throughout much of their traditional range through the efforts of devoted conservationists. This tremendous success story in modern wildlife conservation is impressive.”
