I have supported the Buffalo Field Campaign since learning about harassment and slaughter of wild bison in the Greater Yellowstone, primarily by the State of Montana agencies, and more recently by the national park service as well. BFC volunteers play a direct role in protecting individual animals, documenting inhumane treatment of native animals and waste of public funds, and more importantly by educating Americans through outreach and media campaigns.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The organization keeps me informed with newsletters and media alerts. Improvements have been made in bison management also, though more is needed.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The volunteers are passionate and committed, and my contributions are used directly to protect bison and inform the public.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

purchase grazing rights on public lands, preserve more private lands by acquisition or conservation easement, fund its own lobbying or legal actions to bring about a fair and science based approach to protecting bison and their habitat.

Every year I go out to Yellowstone I am truly awed by the size and majesty of the Yellowstone Bison. They represent the freedom and history of this country. I am a follower of the BFC and applaud them for their work at documenting the abuse that the bison have to deal with from our own government, both local and federal. Keep up the great work BFC!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I enjoy the "Update from the Field" emails from BFC. They are very informative about the current conditions of the herd.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

One year at Yellowstone I was able to meet with some of the volunteers of BFC. They are knowledgable and dedicated to supporting the Yellowstone Bison.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do so much more for the Yellowstone Bison. They would have the ability to pay for legal counsel in protecting the Yellowstone Bison. They would be able to improve the living quarters for the volunteers.

The Buffalo Field Campaign has such dedicated, hard-working members in the field year round, safeguarding the magnificant bison that belong to all citizens. They never give up in their fight; even though, at times the odds are stacked against them. Members lobby at the local and national levels to get laws and policies changed to allow the Yellowstone bison access to their natural migratory routes. I believe, if it weren't for BFC members, the Yellowstone bison would be no longer. What a sad story that would be to tell our grandkids about the demise of the bison, and they would only know them by pictures in books. Hats off to the Buffalo Field Campaign!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy up some of the private lands near the boundaries of Yellowstone NP and allow the bison free range on their native grounds. Money talks, so it would help the organization fight the livestock industry and have more advertising capabilities.

I've followed BFC and the work they do for many years. They face an uphill battle against the cattle industry for fair treatment of the last wild buffalo herd in America. They work tirelessly year-round to document the harassment, capture, and slaughter of the buffalo. They are a small group of people that don't have a lot of exposure but they persevere despite their shortcomings. I wish they had more ways of getting people involved. It is hard to get people to write letters but I know that form letters are not as impactful. I look forward to the day when i don't have to read the BFC newsletters because they were finally successful in reaching their goals. This is a non-profit worth supporting!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

hire lawyers and other people who can help to change the current policies of the DOL and BLM. They could get more support and more exposure. They could buy advertisements to inform the public of the abuses that the buffalo face. BFC could change the world

A fantastic organization devoted to an issue that is outside of the mainstream, even among wildlife protection and animal rights groups.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Learning about the serious crisis facing wild, free-roaming buffalo - an issue that was new to me and quite moving.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated to the cause, well informed, clear on what issues and entities they were up against, willing to listen and work with others on all sides of the discussion.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Establish a preserve that protects the remaining symbols of the nation's wild west and Native American heritage.

I met the Buffalo field Campiagn (BFC) about a decade ago in Yellowstone National Park when I was working with a coyote/wolf study group, Yellowstone Ecosystem Studies. BFC was always there, in the field every day, tabling events and spreading the word. I met some of the volunteers and was inspired by their honesty and passion. With bare resources, they had some of the best eucational materials, and most educated and dedicated volunteers, I had ever met. An environmental activist, educator, and University instructor with 25 years experience, they continue to be one of the best groups I support. Simply and within their means, they educate the public about the American bison's struggle to survive and thrive human threats in thier native rangelands. With so few truly wild, genetically pure bison left in America, they work all the harder to protect, advocate for, educate about, and stand alongside the bison. They are involved on all levels, from escorting bison across dark paved highways from car collisions, to educational booths, to attendance at political meetings, to involvement in litigous and celabratory activities, they stand true. This, they do from the ground. With wool hats and armfulls of firewood, withstanding whiteout blizzards and frostbite, they are in the field with cameras, peacefully and without confrontation, documenting the atrocities and crimes against a fellow creature with no voice. There is no greater and no purer work than that done by the BFC. Please support them.

I have donated to this nonprofit. I think they do an awesome job. Granted, it seems like they can't win the battle considering their opposition is the cattle industry! But every buffalo they save is a blessing! These animals deserve better protection than our government agencies give them; along the same line as the wild mustangs and burros, who are also being attacked by the same - cattle industry! God bless the volunteers of Buffalo Field campaign and all the supporters who help these animals!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the buffalo still roaming free and doing what they can to save them. I'm especially amazed at how during the migration season they help motorists avoid hitting the animals as they cross roadways!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it have more money and more volunteers

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

knowing that even though my donation is small, every little goes to helping these animals

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have not met any of the staff and volunteers personally, but I did ask a question of them once and they answered my question quickly and knew what they were talking about.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

hopefully change legislation to protect these American Icons!

Ways to make it better...

they were beating the cattle industry and had more support for the buffalo and wild horses that the cattle industry is killing off!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the cattle industry and lobbiests!

One thing I'd also say is that...

God bless BFC

I cannot say enough about the important work that the BFC does every single day in and around Yellowstone. If it weren't for them and their completely grass-roots efforts, there might very well be no native, free-ranging bison left in our greatest National Park. Volunteering with BFC was effortless; they provided for my every need while I was there, and equipped me to help their cause not only in Yellowstone but also back east at home throughout the year. Working even a little with BFC provides a glimpse into a life-and-death struggle that few might be aware of otherwise.

This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Every day we woke before sunrise, put on skis, and went out onto the buffalo's habitat. While most days were absolutely perfect--watching buffalo, elk, and wolves in their natural grace--other days were absolutely horrible as Montana livestock agents came out with helicopters and snowmobiles and disrupted the entire ecosystem. I watched and videotaped as they chased buffalo right through barbed-wire fences and into traps, from where they were loaded onto trucks and sent to slaughter houses. While I was there we also made several trips to the state Capital in Helena, where we testified in support of the buffalo. It was a great way to take some of what i learned in the field, fueled by the passion of how I saw them treating the buffalo, and use it to help change the policy under which the buffalo are mistreated.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my level of knowledge on this important issue--both from my time in the field volunteering for patrols and as a recipient of BFC's weekly emails, which keep me up-to-date on the bison's struggle and let me know when there are actions I can take from home.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Buffalo Field Campaign is very grassroots. They have no fancy offices or large salaries and their work is fueled by their passion for the buffalo and their habitat. This comes across in everything they do. It was very easy to get engaged in the issue.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

While I was there there were about 13 staff members and 20+ volunteers. All were very friendly and helpful, though at first it was difficult to connect with the staff members because they were so busy.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change state and federal policy to give the buffalo more room to roam. Purchase key buffalo habitat in the Yellowstone ecosystem where the buffalo could carry out their migration in peace.
