* Update From the Field
Friends of the Buffalo,

We are busy at Camp gathering firewood for another busy season, our seventh in the field with the Yellowstone buffalo. Volunteers have been showing up every day to help with the necessary chores of preparing for the coming winter. Thanks to all of you who have been lending a hand, be it through the hard manual labor of cutting wood or through the equally important work of supporting the Campaign with donations of gear and financial assistance. We couldn't be here without you.

We are making great strides in our long-term goals and celebrate the recent support from 199 members of the U.S. House of Representatives for Yellowstone Buffalo protection. Though the Rahall Amendment to prevent the Departments of Interior and Agriculture from using federal dollars on buffalo slaughter was narrowly defeated, we look forward to future successes in the U.S. Congress. Representative Hinchey of New York is expected to introduce bison protection legislation this fall. We will keep you informed as developments occur and let you know how you can help.

We are also celebrating the fact that there are no longer cattle allotments on Horse Butte and that our legal efforts to gain long-term protection for the last wild buffalo are gaining momentum.

Dan Brister kicked off the East Coast leg of the tour last night with a presentation at the Patagonia store in Washington, DC. The event went amazingly well, with a good turnout, great audience participation, and a lot of exciting contacts made with folks after the show. People were outraged to learn of the slaughter of Yellowstone buffalo and eager to join forces with the BFC. Great momentum to start things off. We owe thanks to Patagonia, Kate, and all the employees at the Georgetown store. Please see the schedule of upcoming events posted below to find out when we'll be in your neck of the woods

None of this recent activity would be possible without you. If you've been wanting to contribute, now would be a great time as we work to get things ready for the coming season. Any donation large or small will help!

Some of you requested a way that you can make automatic monthly donations - you can now do that securely online. Thanks for the suggestion!

All donations made by October 15th will receive a bonus of a quality bumper (or water bottle ) sticker that says - "Keep Yellowstone Bison Wild & Free"
You will also be entered in a special drawing for a great gift from one of our supporters.
Consider donating the price of a meal out for you and some friends (since we can feed a volunteer for 38 cents a day - it will go a long ways.) BFC can move forward with the ESA listing and our outreach and education program area if 100 folks donate $50 each. We can pay our rent if 10 folks donate $170. $38 dollars keeps an activist in the field for a week.

Please join us NOW and click below and donate.

If you're not comfortable with online donations - please send your donations to the physical address below.

Thanks so much.
We can't be here With the Buffalo without YOU!

Together we are making a difference!
For the Buffalo,

* Last Words
I think I could turn and live with animals,
they are so placid,
and self-contained,
I stand and look at them long and long

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of
owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands
of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth

--Walt Whitman
