BUFFALO FIELD CAMPAIGN
June 28, 2014

BFC was the first organization to bring the plight of America's last truly wild bison to the public view over a decade ago. Through bitter cold and heat 365 days /year they are in the field with the buffalo documenting and publicizing the senseless outrages committed by state and federal government agencies against these iconic creatures. They soldiered on through many grim sad days when 100s of bison were inhumanely rounded up and hauled to slaughter, for the supposed bogus reason of controlling brucellosis when the real purpose of the kills was for population control. Ranchers don't want bison grazing on range that they could be running cows on even if that range is located on the public's land.

Ways to make it better...

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

change nothing because these folks are truthful, hardworking and dedicated to the buffalo. They are frugal and can stretch a donation further than any nonprofit I know of.

BUFFALO FIELD CAMPAIGN
April 29, 2012

I have been following and supporting this fine organization for over 10 years. They selflessly follow the last genetically wild remnants of the Great Herd that was all but wiped out in the 1800s. They document and spread the word about the atrocities commited against these buffalo by the federal government and the state of Montana who are perpetuating the range war against the buffalo. These icons of the West, which are valuable wildlife belonging to all Americans, are being senselessly harassed, injured and slaughtered with taxpayer money. Buffalo Field Campaign deserves my praise and donations because they efficiently and selflessly stretch those contributions; they are the only group in the field day in, day out patrolling on behalf of the buffalo.

BUFFALO FIELD CAMPAIGN

Their excellent newsletters keep me informed about what is happening to the herd and let me know what I can do to help out. They are compassionate, caring, committed individuals who have dedicated their lives to the cause of preserving this last remnant of a once mighty herd of buffalo. They have responded with handwritten thank you notes of gratitude for donations -- a couple I really cherish -enclosed in one was a small tuft of real buffalo hair that had been shed in the spring-- the front of another card had a group picture of the volunteers and staff with snowflakes falling. In the 10 years since I discovered the Buffalo Field Campaign they have worked tirelessly to protect these bison, have accomplished much and saved many buffalo lives.

The Great!

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

hearing about the patrols which go out in all kinds of adverse weather and at all hours to monitor and record what heinous and ridiculous things governmental agencies are doing to the bison. I've also seen the volunteers who station themselves on highways
