Frontlines defense of yellowstone bison - buffalo field campaign's core program is the operation of daily field patrols along bison migration corridors near the boundaries of yellowstone national park. Patrols operate during the times of year when bison are in montana. Voluteers equipped with still and video cameras document every action taken aqainst buffalo and the toll these operations take on wild species in the ecosystem. Buffalo field campaign provided training, room, board, winter clothing, and equipment to each of these volunteers outfitting them for some of the most extreme weather conditions in the country. Time spent in the presence of wild bison - both in their natural grace and through the chaos of hazing, capture, and slaughter operations - inspires buffalo field campaign volunteers and coordinators to visualize, organize, and actualize a wide range of initiatives aimed at bringing permanent protection to this last wild bison population. A goal of the frontlines bison defense project is to permanently protect bison migration routes and the bison's right to access them.

denali's Review for Buffalo Field Campaign

Role: General Member of the Public
Rating: 5 stars  

Buffalo Field Campaign is one of the 5 best environmental groups in existence; maybe the absolute best, but I don't claim to know everything! As the welfare ranchers take our money and our land, they demand the removal of OUR wildlife from OUR public lands! Fish and Game helps them, as does Yellowstone Park. The whole situation is corrupt and immoral...and BFC is the only organization working to save OUR wild bison. They are a national treasure, and I have unmitigated respect and admiration for all the volunteers, and everything they do.
