Review from Guidestar
November 26, 2010

As a life long resident of the Horse Butte, my grandfather homesteaded (Before Hebgen Lake was a Lake) what is now Hebgen Lake Estates, and my Father worked on the Ranch that is now the Yellowstone Ranch Preserve, (former Munns Ranch) Breaking horses in the 30's and 40's. I still live in the homestead cabin they built in 1938(the second cabin on the original homestead). At the moment I'm living with my mother next door in 'our' family cabin, because she lost her sight and has developed dementia. We have witnessed the atrocities put forth against the Bison from the beginning. We have seen the carelessness of the 'Gvt.' officials first hand. My father pretty much told them all to keep off this road and property or else, and they pretty much have. That does not stop them from using the power-line behind our house that is on forest service, and public access. We support the BFC in their endeavors. They are some of the most dedicated, caring people you could ever meet. If it weren't for them and their help not only would the Bison be exterminated from the Horse Butte Peninsula, but I'm afraid, so would my mother and I. If we need anything, they are the first to respond. Even when a stupid neighbor started a fire in the afternoon just as the wind was coming up which spread the fire fast a furiously. One call to the BFC, (they were in the middle of documenting a haze) and they scrambled people over to our area. Of course the Department of Livestock Agents tried to stop the BFC from helping us put out the fire, but with some persistence from the BFC and my mother, father and I, they then let the BFC come fight the fire while the deputies and DoL agents sat on their behinds and watched. All this while waiting for the Fire dept. to show up. Needless to say the BFC volunteers were able to stop the fire from exploding a propane tank of a Member of the Livestock communities home, they were able to stop the spread before it hit the timber. at NO Thanks to any other State or Gvt. agency that was there. When the Fire trucks finally arrived, the BFC went back and caught up with the rest of the volunteers, and the muddled mess of the haze. The Fire Dept. told me later that had the BFC not done what they had when they had we could possibly have lost EVERYTHING. The Buffalo Field Campaign is out in the field no matter what the weather, protecting the Bison to the best of their ability, and protecting the 'humans' that aren't smart enough to know that a Bison can do serious damage to a motor vehicle, along with it's occupants. You won't see anybody BUT the Buffalo Field Campaign out there all hours of the day and night in all increments of weather, warning drivers of Bison that are right along and sometimes ON the highway. I have many stories of how and what has happened out here in this battle for the Bison. But I won't take any more of any one's time right now.

As a biologist Ph.D., a daughter of the People according to family legend, and a lover of the earth, thank you for all that you do. If a government program was as successful as has been the Buffalo Field Campaign ....considering the declining numbers listed each year of murdered buffalo as reported in your newsletter....people would be dancing in the streets. You must keep up the pressure, the education, the personal dedication to this cause that you believe in. Help restore American values that bridge the divide of YOU the People from all who came to these shores after you. Save the Buffalo!

The Great!

Seeing the impact of their courageous actions to confront those who would destroy the buffalo both personally and through legal and other means.

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

Encourage your other tribal leader brethren to fight as well for the Florida Panther, Key Deer, major predators and prey animals in other states. I am reminded of the beauty of the Alps Mountains and the paucity of predator species and prey species there today due to human habitation. At least the Russians still have their Russian bears (but these too are being poached for their skins and gall bladders, etc. come to think of it!).

My heart goes out to the wild buffalo & I am saddened by the brutality of the DOL & it's continual onslaught on innocent animals. My heart goes out to the tireless hours the dedicated workers & volunteers of Buffalo Field Campaing do. I am thankful for their dedication. I donate whenever I can & goodshop for BFC. I think BFC does a wonderful job to protect our last wild buffalo. They are heroes.

In winter of 1996-97 after my fall visit to the Tetons and Yellowstone over 1,000 wild bison were slaughtered at the borders of Yellowstone and Montana. I was horrified. Online I discovered Buffalo Nations and Cold Mountain Cold River - buffalo activist groups which evolved into Buffalo Field Campaign. Always honest, direct and consistent in their determination to regain habitat for the wild herd - the BFC intensive website has helped me inform myself while responding to calls for action to write letters, make calls etc. Their persistence in documenting the situation is remarkable. The email updates are always informative great for supporters near and far. BFC is a wonderful hard working group and I am always moved by their strength and commitment to the future of the bison herd.

The Great!

I always feel very comfortable encouraging others to learn about the Yellowstone Bison issue through BFC knowing there is a wealth of information and documentation on their website. It makes it easier to try to educate others about this issue.

Get them more funding. Their organization is strong and does so much with very little income. With more funding the awareness and political actions could possibly bring a real solution to the problem.

I've been following Buffalo Field Campaign efforts to protect wild bison in their habitat for about five years. What impresses me is how these committed volunteers maintain their cool, candor, and compassion under all circumstances. When BFC isn't patrolling the migratory routes on behalf of bison bulls, cows and calves, who are perpetually hazed, run ragged, darted, drugged, and slaughtered, they're attending meetings, lobbying, writing policy papers, educating the public, providing objective facts, and countering self-serving lies (about brucellosis, for example) that cattle ranchers and hunters tell in their war on these beautiful beasts of the plains and forests.

The Great!

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

understanding the issues surrounding the last of the wild bison herd in the United States and being able to share my understanding with others.

Ways to make it better...

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

find a way to increase the number of volunteers and donors, so that word of the bison's plight could be extended, and public pressure could be brought to bear on government agencies whose officials are too readily influenced by wealthy ranchers and hunters and other self-interested parties.

Without the Buffalo Field Campaign, the situation for buffalo in this country would be a lot bleaker. It is the only org that is actually in the field documenting what is happening to buffalo - the injustices these animals suffer because they need the grass and water that ranchers covet exclusively for their cattle. The org operates year round, from fall to spring when the buffalo are directly under attack, and during the summer does outreach to national park visitors. It has done more than any org to educate the public and Congress about the plight of buffalo in this country, and the need to preserve these iconic animals, symbols of the American west.

BFC works year in and year out in all kinds of extreme weather to protect buffalo who are on the brink of extinction. If not for this group, much of the abuse heaped upon these hapless animals by government agents working on behalf of cattle ranchers would not be known. They are heroes in the real sense of the word.

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

do a lot more! Get out the word to the public about this problem. Hire lobbyists to influence Montana and federal legislators in favor of the buffalo.

I first ran across BFC volunteers when they were just starting out. They had a table with information near Old Faithful in Yellowston. Since then, their emails have kept me informed of the appalling treatment of Yellowstone Buffalo, a national treasure. Without the BFC, the Yellowstone Buffalo might not have survived until now. Please help them continue their courageous work.

The Great!

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

Yellowstone and in their newsletters, which are very informative.

Ways to make it better...

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

Give them more resources so the fate of the Yellowstone buffalo could more easily be more widely known.

More feedback...

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

the expertise of the volunteers and staff of the organization and their willingness to continue fighting huge odds to save the Yellowstone herd.

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

friendly and dedicated!

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

fight the political powers that be in Wyoming and Montana and find a permanent solution to ensure the Yellowstone buffalo's safe future.

Ways to make it better...

This organization had more funding to allow them to spread the word of their cause.

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

weather and lack of funding.

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

I've never seen a more dedicated group of people fight so hard against such odds. They are a voice in the wilderness and we need them.
