Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals, Arts & Culture, Environment, Film & Video, Land Resources Conservation, Unknown, Wildlife Preservation & Protection

Mission: Since 2000, state and federal agencies have engaged in the wanton slaughter of nearly 6,000 Yellowstone bison, members of America's only continuously wild and genetically pure herd. Buffalo Field Campaign patrols defend the buffalo and their critical habitat, and document every move made against them.

Target demographics: America's only continuously wild population of free-born bison

Geographic areas served: Yellowstone country: in Montana and Yellowstone on the buffalo's chosen habitat

Programs: Frontlines defense of yellowstone bison - buffalo field campaign's core program is the operation of daily field patrols along bison migration corridors near the boundaries of yellowstone national park. Patrols operate during the times of year when bison are in montana. Voluteers equipped with still and video cameras document every action taken aqainst buffalo and the toll these operations take on wild species in the ecosystem. Buffalo field campaign provided training, room, board, winter clothing, and equipment to each of these volunteers outfitting them for some of the most extreme weather conditions in the country. Time spent in the presence of wild bison - both in their natural grace and through the chaos of hazing, capture, and slaughter operations - inspires buffalo field campaign volunteers and coordinators to visualize, organize, and actualize a wide range of initiatives aimed at bringing permanent protection to this last wild bison population. A goal of the frontlines bison defense project is to permanently protect bison migration routes and the bison's right to access them. The organization convey information and images gained through field patrols, public meetings, and research to citizens across the country and around the globe.

policy work, research and legal program - the bfc researches information related to the yellowstone buffalo, brucellosis and wildlife in the greater yellowstone area. Coordinators conduct extensive research into land use issues and present their findings to the general public and attend public meetings and conferences and submit public comments on management decisions affecting the yellowstone bison.

education and outreach - the buffalo field campaign's education and outreach efforts convey information and images gained through field patrols, public meetings and research to citizens across the country and around the globe. Bfc conveys buffalo-related news and information through a multi-media website, weekly email updates, coverage in mainstream and alternative newspapers, television, and radio on a variety of websites, on annual road shows, and through the publication and distribution of an annual newsletter.

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.

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.

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.

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.
