> Antelope Island, Great Salt Lake
Uploaded by: Joe On: Sep 16 2006, 10:28 PM Views: 1116 · Comments: 0
The largest of the Great Salt Lake's 10 islands, Antelope Island is part of the Utah State Park System. From the mainland, its 28,022 acres appear barren and deserted. But Antelope Island is home to a variety of flora and fauna native to the Great Basin region. This is a great place to view wildlife. The island was without its namesake antelope for many years, but they were reintroduced in 1993 and can now be seen in many areas of the park. Deer, bobcats, coyotes, many varieties of birds and waterfowl, and a small herd of elk also call the island home. But most famous are Antelope Island's American Bison, introduced to the island in 1893 and now numbering some 600 animals.
