BUFFALO FIELD CAMPAIGN
April 5, 2012
I have been a member/donor of Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC) since it began I think in 1996. As a naturalist guide and conservationist I appreciate every day the amazing work they do often in frigid temperatures for our native Yellowstone genetically pure bison that have been singled out by the cattle industry. BFC has exposed the horrific Interagency Bison Management Plan for what it is--a campaign led by the livestock industry to keep wild Yellowstone bison out of MT. They use the disease, brucellosis, as the reason, but it is really all about competition for grass. Native wildlife belongs on our precious public lands, not the damn cows! BFC has led the way to help return these bison to MT.

BUFFALO FIELD CAMPAIGN
November 27, 2010
I have been a member of Buffalo Field Campaign since it began, as I share love and admiration for the magnificent genetically pure buffalo of Yellowstone National Park and disgust at the way they have been inhumanely treated by Montana and the federal government to placate the powerful livestock industry. The waste of taxpayer dollars is obscene. BFC exposes the horrific treatment of our iconic buffalo and lays out solutions: allowing bison limited migration and access to habitat on our federal lands outside Yellowstone and on lands of willing owners; emphasis on private livestock for disease prevention rather than on bison; retiring of livestock grazing allotments by the Forest Service in sensitive areas for bison. Wildlife should come first on our public lands, and BFC represents the best of wildlife preservation efforts.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have been impressed with how BFC has pressured MT, the NPS, USFS, and APHIS on their inhumane treatment of bison and how they have gotten the word out about the plight of Yellowstone's bison.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would make no changes.
Donor & I have watched BFC patrols in action in the West Yellowstone area and made my disgust known to the MT Dept. of Livestock which control wild bison when they migrate out into MT from Yellowstone.
