Amazing group of people doing one-of-a-kind work! Unique in every way and well worth getting involved with.
I learned about Lakota activist Rosalie Little Thunder, from her granddaughter. My research on Rosalie lead me to BFC. I was shocked to find out the atrocities that Yellowstone bison are put through on a yearly basis. I had no idea that they were killing off thousands of the majestic Bison and the history of the midwest for no real reason at all. If it were not for the tireless efforts of BFC to protect the bison, it would be unconscionable what fate the bison would have to endure. It is imperative for the state of our being that the bison ecosystem be maintained. Bison should not be killed for seeking out food in the winter because they cross an imaginary line into Montana. The Bison do not spread disease! Their numbers were in the millions and now we only have a few herds of genetically intact, non-domesticated, and continually free buffalo. We need to stop shrinking our ecosystems and learn a new way to live. We also need to preserve history for the generations to come.
Dedicated, passionate, communicative non-profit that is working to inspire the protection and freedom of our mighty buffalo. Thank you for all your hard work and devotion.
Buffalo Field Campaign is a dedicated group of people who put themselves on the line, in the field, and in between those who do the bison harm. These are special animals that deserve to live in peace in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem protected as our National Mammal. It's absurd that these iconic, majestic creatures are hazed, and hunted, and sent to slaughter by the hundreds from within and around their migration routes in the part.. IF the BFC was not there to observe and document, we would not know the injustices being done in places most of us will never see. I am so impressed by the dedication of BFC staff to this great cause. This is a non-profit that deserves support to continue their important work.
A small but energetic and effective organization with a narrow goal of saving Yellowstone bison and a wide goal of restoring the Greater Yeklowstone Ecosystem. They use donations wisely. It's a honor to support them.
I don't believe any organization does more to ensure buffalo in the wild are being treated as they should be and in getting the word out about their plight. I have had them as my preferred charity on goodsearch/goodshop.com and smile.amazon.com for a while now. It's an effortless way to donate to this MOST worthy and noble cause every time you shop for things you need anyway. Support them - and Let the Buffalo Roam !!!
Really impressed by the dedication put forth by these people. They truly care about the bison and help others understand the importance of saving these majestic animals. They are truly awesome.
This incredible non-profit does so much with so little. Dedicated, enduring, passionate and suffering along with the buffalo, they are so impressive and so admirable and so determined. Our National Heritage buffalo/bison are the target of hunters and hunter-controlled government agencies, with even the Park Service unwilling to stand up for the defenseless buffalo who are only trying to live and survive in areas that have been their homeland since the beginning. BFC is their voice and their advocate when others are to busy to care. This is, indeed, a non-profit that walks the walk.
I have been a supporter for Buffalo Field Campaign for several years. They are a hard working group that put their actual lives on the line to watch over the national animal . the buffalo have been threatened and endangered by various props who fly over them and hassle the new young ones and mothers. It's called razing. BCF put out a monthly letter on line to help us all stay on top of what is going on out in the natural habitat of this majestic and honored creature. They strive to maintain peaceful solutions and have the backing of many fine legal services. They volunteer!!! to keep our national animal safe from two legged predators. Contact them to join in this service to the future of this fragile world and this ancient creature. Tatanka!!
Having some Indigenous Ways within me and being part of All Creatures, part of Earth.
Seeing clearly that modern economics cannot be arbiters of survival and have shown little skill at sustaining anything, ethical merit versus $$$ when wealth is on paper with so many zeros and bills must be paid.
The Great Plains produced more biomass before contact than modern agriculture's denuded diversity and row-cropping.
Extinction events are tied to loss of diversity and low planetary oxygen, that's in the geologic record and we are now reducing oxygen rapidly and losing over 200-species per day knowing that for a new species the event is rare, not yearly, not decadal, hardly by century at times.
The ungulate bond to an apex-predator balance held over many thousands of years in plenty.
Perhaps the reins now need to pass back to those that honored what worked and there was no hunger unless all were hungry, there was bounty shared and respect given to good thinkers, people with insight to past-present-future being tied and always ongoing together.
The Western Culture can learn, we assume, yet not until it puts down the crown of arrogance of being "in charge", to not dominate and conquer, to communicate and share to go back to a worthy ethic of behavior for future people to honor, not the ransacked, stripped down and left behind planet we see today.
The Buffalo is the basis of a Culture, it's not just an animal to kill for food, that's an insight into how to honor any animal, to live with them in abundance again.
amazing organization. you can also support them through Amazon Smile! it doesn't cost anything - they donate a % of the items you purchase on Amazon. It's great.
My husband and I have supported Buffalo Field Campaign for years, ever since we heard about them. Their dedication to saving the remaining wild buffalo is tireless and inspiring. They communicate with the world why this needs to be done and teaches through their videos, books, webpage, social media and road shows the importance of saving our national species for future generations. Along with doing the actual work of videoing and being with the buffalo during harsh roundups and slaughter, they write books and create educational videos for adults and children alike. They have always treated their donors with respect and I know in my heart that they are the best non-profit around. Even when things get tight financially, we donate to Buffalo Field Campaign. Their work is that important to us.
The BFC is on the front-line in the battle to protect bison. Without them the tragic mistreatment of bison would not be widely known. They must continue this work.
this is the best non-profit i know of that is trying to help keep our original wild buffalo alive and well and protected! they work hard day and night to protect them and need all the help they can get. i hope everyone that cares about the buffalo will start donating to them now! i donate to them as often as i can.
As far as I know, the Buffalo Field Campaign is the only nonprofit that is trying to keep our wild buffalo (bison) alive and well and not confined to only one place, but spread out like they used to be before they were nearly exterminated. They have had a hard go of it with the ranchers and still do. The buffalo are mistreated and/or killed by the ranchers at times, even the baby calves. Sad situation. They need all the help they can get so that our descendants can still see part of our history in America.
BFC Rocks! I've learned so much about activism, wildlife, and community from this group. A passionate and dedicated bunch if ever there was one!
Get involved, volunteer, take action, contribute!
I personally know several of these great warriors who are standing with our buffalo every day. They give their hearts to these great creatures and deserve our support!
Absolutely one of the best groups - donate to this group and help preserve Ameica's national mammal. They are out in the field doing want's needed.
Buffalo Field Campaign is a group of dedicated people who care about the buffalo living in this country, and are trying to help find them their place where they can be safe with their families and live in peace. They harm no one and just want to live their lives as do all wildlife. None should be protected over another, all should be respected by all. Special interest has no place moving and invading in places where they need not be. Please donate anything you can to help protect these magnificent animals, who are a part of our history that we should be honoring . That is what the work of BFC is all about, every single day. They need our voice and our donations to help continue their important work.
Thank you for all that you do. Your ambition and passion to save buffalo is heartfelt. It's organizations like this that deserve recognition.
I've volunteered for the Buffalo Field Campaign numerous times. When volunteering to save wild buffalo I felt like I was doing something very cause worthy. These buffalo don't have a voice. We must be their voice. This is the last remaining genetically pure buffalo in the world, and they deserve our attention and compassion.
This is the ONLY group working to save the last wild herd of bison. Even tho federal laws state that federal lands are SUPPOSED to be partially for the preservation of the last wild herds of wildlife; horses, bison, wolves, mountain goats and sheep.....TOO OFTEN ranching interests and energy company interests trump these promises. Buffalo Field Campaign volunteers and staff live there near the bison, they monitor what is going on, and keep the rest of us informed when the Feds and the ranchers start hazing or murdering or trapping these wild herds. NOBODY else does this work.
The Buffalo Field Campaign is simply the best. They are the only ones that try to protect Yellowstone buffalo from harassment and death at the hands of the National Park Service and the Montana Department of Livestock in the winter; the very same buffalo that visitors from all over the world come to see in the summer. What a crazy agenda. I love and respect the Buffalo Field Campaign for their dedication and hard work against a corrupt government system.
I have followed this organization for a number of years and have been impressed with their persistence, passion, and dedication to the last genetically pure herd of bison left in the U.S. They never bow to intimidation by local, state or federal authorities because they operate within the structure of the law. Their work is both physically and emotionally draining, and they may become discouraged, but they never give up. They know they are the only voice the buffalo of Yellowstone have, and if they stop advocating, this last pocket of genetically pure buffalo will be lost to the greed of the livestock industry. This is an organization that operates basically from volunteers and donations, and they do so much with so little. Educational and outreach programs, along with documenting buffalo migration, hazing and slaughter by officials, and cooperation with local ranchers and land owners, make this organization an outstanding non-profit.
Words cannot express how thankful and impressed I am with the work that Buffalo Field Campaign and their volunteers do for America's wild bison. Without their work, I believe that our bison would have little or no protection against the people and government who would do them harm and run them to extinction again. I say, three cheers for Buffalo Field Campaign and a heartfelt thank you to them!
When making a visit to Yellowstone National Park in 2002 I came in contact with the Buffalo Field Campaign. After hearing there pitch and making a donation, I have made a donation every year since then as they continue their mission. I love that my donation is going straight to the actual people in the field, not to fund raisers or highly paid executives. I get their weekly newsletters and appreciate the local information when planning a new trip to the area.
As longtime supporters of environmental and animal rights organizations, we are incredibly impressed with Buffalo Field Campaign, a hands-on, grassroots group that works tirelessly to protect America's last wild buffalo. Their dedication to this little-known issue is incredibly inspiring. We are touched by their passion and honored to spread the word of their work.
The work of this fine organization comes straight from the heart. They literally are in the field -- on the ground protecting America's only remaining wild buffalo. And they share their experiences with beautiful stories and amazing photos for those of us who love and honor buffalo, but who cannot be there to serve in that way.
I am tremendous grateful for the Buffalo Field Campaign, and I hope others will learn about and support them, too.
This is a hands on group that is doing an excellent job of protecting an iconic species. Without them I would not know much of what is going on and how they are being harmed.
This organization does amazing work to protect the American buffalo. Their web page is full of educational information. Their videos prove the work they do, and I have no doubts that my donations are put to good use. It is my belief that the American Buffalo is a national treasure and every citizen should take responsibility for the care and protection of these majestic animals.
I have been a supporter of the Buffalo Field Campaign for over 10yrs now. I call these folks my friends and they are my neighbors. They do an excellent job of protecting/fighting for Yellowstone's native bison population. They are an amazing group of people who truly care about our bison and work not only on paper and over the internet, but literally have their boots on the ground everyday out in the field to make sure the bison are not being harassed by state/federal agencies. I love the buffalo - bought my home because of the bison that come through every spring/fall. Please help this wonderful organization as they go around the country and to Washington, D.C. to speak out on behalf of the wild Yellowstone bison. Your donation would be greatly appreciated and put toward good use. Thank you Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC) for what you do everyday! You are the best!
This is a wonderful organization which has set about to preserve the last remaining free roaming herd of wild buffalo in this country. These people spend their lives out in the elements (winter too) protecting the buffalo of Yellowstone from our federal government as well as the government sponsored activities of Montana. The Buffalo Field Campaign faces insurmountable odds as they try to protect the buffalo from the ignorance of the cattle industry, while the cattle industry has the backing of the state (of Montana) and federal officials. The Buffalo Field Campaign survives from donations only. One of the most pure and selfless organizations out there.
I ran across the Buffalo Field Campaign website after a visit to Yellowstone a couple of years ago. While photographing these magnificent creatures, I had no idea of the danger they must face each and every year in order to survive. We call ourselves a civilized people, but the cruelty unleashed on the buffalo is beyond inhumane. The Buffalo Field Campaign is the only organization standing up to the cattlemen and the state of Montana in the constant inhumane battle that ensues year after year. I shutter to think of what would have become of the Yellowstone Buffalo without the Buffalo Field Campaign's watchful eye and reports from the field. The Buffalo Field Campaign struggles admist unfathomable conditions to protect these animals and to report to the public the grossly inhumane acts committed by our federal government in addition to the State of Montana. They are the only honest voice for the Yellowstone Buffalo. Roam Free!
BBC has consistently dedicated themselves to protecting our last wild buffalo. They have made amazing strides against the arrogant and the ignorant who would willing exterminate these intelligant, hearty, and family oriented living creatures.
For 10 years I have watched the activities of the Buffalo Field Campaign and 5 years ago volunteered for 2 weeks at their headquarters in MT. They are well organized and use their limited donated funds very efficiently. I have never seen a group of people so dedicated to their cause of holding Montana government and the Federal Park Service accountable for their actions relating to their treatment of the wild buffalo - with such love for these animals that they put themselves in harms way to protect them (always within the law, of course). I honor their work and their humanity.
What an awesome place. I discovered passion for a cause greater than myself. A wonderful community doing amazing work! I wouldn't be the man I am without BFC. Spent 2+ years on site... Some of the hardest work but best memories of my life.
After everything they have endured my heart goes out to the Bison . Nowhere else can I get such good information on the current herds . And learn about the current struggle for their survival .
Buffalo Field Campaign is a great example of what a nonprofit should be and do. They are professional and passionate staff and volunteer members. It's obvious that they put their funds into their work for the benefit of the buffalo and not to benefit themselves.
I have been a donor AND I also volunteered one week with this amazing organization. Every bit of resources goes into efforts that directly affect saving the buffalo. I work in the nonprofit area myself, so I am keen to seeing how a nonprofit uses its resources and the results it is attaining. Buffalo Field Campaign is one of those organizations that I am more than happy and willing to assist in its mission to save these magnificent icons of our nation's history. In addition to the animal rights work that they do, the organization also addresses environmental rights as well as human rights in relation to the "battles" that Native Americans still experience in the region, including those that connect them with the buffalo. Education and on-the-ground, one-on-one work with the buffalo and the public make this one of my top organizations to support.
BFC is one of the best front-lines organizations working for animal and environmental rights. I greatly admire them because they consistently distribute scientific evidence against the main underpinning of ranchers' prejudice against bison; and because they work on many levels to ensure the last wild bison can survive not just in Yellowstone, but also in more of their preferred habitat beyond park borders. Their on the ground coverage of what happens during the annual hazing of the bison speaks louder than any words they could say, and their love for the creatures is clearly their driving force.
Buffalo Field Campaign is one of the best nonprofits I've ever supported. Never have I seen such a professional outfit run by such passionate volunteers and staff members. It's obvious that they put their funds into their work for the benefit of the buffalo and not to benefit themselves as you sometimes see with other nonprofits. BFC's mission is clear, and they live it every day, in the field, in the courtroom, in ACTION to make a real difference. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful nonprofit protecting America's last wild buffalo.
Few organizations -conservation oriented or otherwise - actually work in the field and keep their purpose as focused and pure as the Buffalo Field Campaign. This is a frontline, active group of dedicated people trying to preserve a vital part of our American heritage.
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.
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.
I first heard of the Buffalo Field Campaign when a young man disrupted the slaughter of the buffalo this spring. I was very impressed with his commitment and understood his feelings and frustration at trying to deal with agencies that get so bogged down in red tape. I am very impressed with the amount of sourced, educational information on the Buffalo Field Campaign's website. These folks are so committed and clear in their goals and they make a lot of sacrifices to protect the buffalo. For those who value the lives of some of the last truly iconic and wild animals on our continent, this organization deeply deserves our support.
They go above and beyond to show the plight of our buffalo. They speak the truth and show the pictures of how the buffalo are being harassed by the state and fed govt. They are in the field with the buffalo rain, shine and snow, such dedication.
The BFC is out 365 days a year working to protect the bison. They document, report and speak for the bison at meetings. And as far as I know they are all non paid volunteers!
I love the work they do and the information they provide about the cause. I have learned a lot from them over the past year.
The Buffalo of the America's are a great symbol of strength.. an icon of what America once was and can be again.
The Buffalo Field Campaign is an amazing organization helping to protect these humble giants. Helping to preserve their rights and land access. They are one of the best non-profits working in America today. I truly wish they would get more recognition and support.
BFC is the only organization working in the field and with policy-makers to protect Yellowstone's wild bison from hazing and death. Their work is indispensable to saving the nation's last, truly wild bison herd. I had not idea the bison were being 'hazed', i.e. bullied, chased and driven to death until I heard a presentation by Mike of the BFC. I have visited Yellowstone twice in 2014, and have fallen in love with bison. It's a shame that local cattle ranchers, and many in the Montana government, insist on their plan of exterminating wild bison by continuing to perpetuate the myth that bison are carriers of brucellosis.
Bison are America's iconic land mammal, and BFC is to be commended for its 'boots on the ground' work. I am proud to be a supporter of Buffalo Field Campaign.
The Yellowstone buffalo is very special to me. a number of years ago, by accident, I was blessed when I went eye to eye with one of these magnificent creatures and their Soul became part of my soul. BFC puts their heart and soul into trying to provide the buffalo with peace and justice on their land. This group is one of the few nonprofits who give completely of themselves in an effort to preserve and protect part of our countries heritage, the wild and free buffalo.
For years I have followed the work of the Buffalo Field Campaign and I must say with all sincerity without them the Buffalo population would be treated without regard. In very recent time they have kept us enlightened to the plight of the great buffalo and has made it possible for us to react to each dilemma. As of Native American descent, I believe, that the Buffalo should stand side by side with the Bald Eagle as the American symbol. This organization is the trustees of the Buffalo. I will stand to say this nonprofit is a GREAT nonprofit and deserves recognition for all their hard work.
Buffalo Field Campaign is the only organization I know of that actually has a "boots on the ground" philosophy when it comes to protecting and saving our nations' last wild bison herds. When you stop to think that literally millions upon millions of these noble beasts once roamed wild and free, it should break your heart to learn that state and federal government agencies seem to desire nothing more than the complete eradication of bison from our planet. I support BFC and their mission and I ask that you join me and the others who believe the Bison should be protected and left to roam free and wild. Stop the hazing, stop the trapping and stop the killing!
I support and believe in their mission:
"Buffalo Field Campaign is the only group working in the field and on the policy front to protect the wild bison of the Yellowstone ecosystem."
I was invited to visit BFC and spend a few days with them last summer it was a great experience the people at BFC are an awesome bunch they are hard working and the Buffalo are there life,and it was the best life experience I have ever had.Keep up the good work guys and gals you all rock.
I want the last wild bison to roam free. Buffalo Field Campaign helps protect the herd, educate the public, and encourage the survival of the last remaining wild bison in the United States and world. This is important to all conservationists, US citizens and biodiversity advocates the world over. The alternative is extinction.
Buffalo have always been a spirit of Spirit in our presents. The destruction of their life brings huge sadness to all of God's creation. This is the most respected 501c3 I know of to help protect buffalo. too much bloodshed has happened already. These are the bravest, true to their calling I have ever known. I only wish I could help them even more.
This organization has no integrity when dealing with people who do not fully agree with their positions. They utilize their membership to attack organizations and individuals by using false statements and when confronted for their actions place the blame on their membership by stating they can't control what individuals do. They act as an agitator yet do not accept responsibility for things they cause.
As they say, they are the only group IN THE FIELD helping this much-endangered American icon and I am proud to help BFC in any way I can!
The BFC is the ONLY organization that is doing something hands-on, proactively to protect the bison. They devote their lives to saving the last wild bison; educating the public; having the courage, the guts, to stand up to the governmental (both state and federal) agencies who allow themselves to be manipulated by ranchers. I had the honor of hearing Daniel Brister give his first-hand experience as the head of BFC. He explained in detail what BFC does and elaborated on the experiences of BFC. He gave anecdotes and examples of the behavior of the bison, which made the importance of saving them so much more powerful.
With so much harassment that is put on bison in Yellowstone and through out the country, the BFC is wonderful for what they do and is an absolute necessity to end this ridiculous harassment that is put on bison for ridiculous reasons. Although there are many people who disagree with what happens with bison, there aren't very many organizations doing much about it except for the BFC. They're an excellent organization and they make a difference everyday.
Totally worthwhile organization that is trying to protect the last few iconic animals before greedy ranchers destroy them all. I enjoy getting the photographic updates and specific suggestions on what I can do to help their efforts.
This is a wonderful nonprofit agency that is in the field yearround to preserve our last wild buffalo. They do wonderful work trying to protect the buffalo while having to watch constant harrassment of the buffalo, especially the mothers and new calves every spring being hazed by various governmental departments for absolutely no valid reason. This is a very important organization constantly working in the field through volunteers to protect our last living wild buffalo. These wild buffalo MUST be protected to preserve our last living animals that are free roaming in Yellowstone National Park. Please give my review some serious attention so that we can preserve our last wild buffalo. Thank you for your consideration.
Montana bison are the icon of our western history. BFC is a small but efficacious organization that hourly dedicates itself to preserving this historical icon.
This is an organization that without a doubt has been in the trenches day in and day out for the buffalo. They are 100%++ committed to the buffalo's well-being and the right to live, even when there are others who want to abuse them and kill them. They are there while we cannot be there, raising awareness, watching out for their safety on the roads, tirelessly trying to protect them against very misguided and wrongful politically-driven hazing and round-ups by government entities. If BFC didn't exist I wonder if these buffalo would ever have a chance against the politically-driven forces that want to wipe them out. BFC is a critical member of the greater Yellowstone community. When I support them and their efforts, I am a part of the greater Yellowstone community, along with local residents and ranchers who want to see these buffalo live. BFC vigilently fights for the buffalo's right to live. All with extremely modest financial resources. Thank you BFC!
