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.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Highly educated and dedicated.
