Updates from the Buffalo Field Campaign

31 Aug

Public comments needed for year-round wild bison habitat in Montana, and BFC Roadshow announced!

from Buffalo Field Campaign

BullsRoam_BFCseay2011-1The Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC) is the only group working in the field, everyday, to stop the slaughter and harassment of Yellowstone’s wild buffalo. Volunteers from around the world defend buffalo on their traditional winter habitat and advocate for their protection. Our daily patrols stand with the buffalo on the ground they choose to be on, and document every move made against them. Volunteers spend all day, from sunrise until sunset, watching and documenting actions taken against the buffalo. We run patrols from cars, skis and snowshoes to protect buffalo outside the park. Tactics range from video documentation to nonviolent civil disobedience.

TAKE ACTION: Comments Due September 13 on Year-Round Habitat

The public comment period is currently open on Montana’s proposal for some year-round bison habitat in both the Hebgen and Gardiner Basins, west and north of Yellowstone National Park. Comments are being accepted until 5pm on September 13, 2013.

West Coast Roadshow Dates Announced

BFC’s West Coast roadshow, featuring BFC’s Campaign Coordinator Mike Mease and musicians Good Shield and Mignon Geli, will begin at the end of September. We’ll be covering most of the West Coast, beginning in Bellingham, WA and heading all the way south to Los Angeles, CA. John Trudell will be honoring BFC again with a special fundraiser in Berkeley, CA and the Pearl Jam fan club, Ten Club, will be hosting an event in Seattle, WA. Some shows are still being finalized and we will update info as it comes in. If you live in an area where a show is taking place, please feel free to get in touch with the contact person listed for that show, print and hang posters around your community, or simply tell as many friends as possible. Thanks for your endless support. We look forward to meeting you in person this Fall. To read the full schedule, click here.
