Buffalo Field Campaign is gathering signatories for our report on listing American bison as a species of conservation concern on National Forests in Region 1.
The Custer Gallatin is revising its forest plan and taking comments on their proposed action to guide future decisions about American bison on the National Forest, and the Regional Forester is taking comments on listing species of conservation concern in Region 1.
The Custer Gallatin’s proposed action for American bison is to let the state of Montana dictate where the migratory species can and cannot roam National Forest habitat. Under the forest’s proposed action, our National Mammal would be excluded from hundreds of thousands of acres of National Forest habitat.
Our report proposes an alternative for public evaluation that addresses the regulatory threats and stressors American bison are confronted with in the Yellowstone region. We’re pulling out the stops to ensure America’s last wild bison can freely roam our National Forests.
Recently, BFC board member and Nez Perce tribal member James Holt sent a personal letter (PDF) to thirty-four American Indian Tribes to encourage resolutions in support of listing American bison as a species of conservation concern on National Forest lands.
We’re rolling ahead and over forty organizations and twelve hundred individuals have signed on. Thank you!
Please sign on today and share this special alert with friends, family, and loved ones.
Thank you for adding your voice to a growing chorus of people who support recognizing American bison as a species of conservation concern on our National Forests.
