TO: Ken Salazar, Secretary, U.S. Department of the Interior
Jonathan B. Jarvis, Director, U.S. National Park Service
Dan Wenk, Superintendent, Yellowstone National Park
Governor Steve Bullock

I support the emergency rule petition to stop the U.S. National Park Service from slaughtering wild bison inside Yellowstone National Park, and request that you live up to your responsibility to protect our shared natural heritage by taking urgent measures to conserve America's last wild bison herd in its native habitat. 

To ensure bison's long-term survival and health, a minimum of 2,000 bison for each distinct bison population is needed. That number would ensure that genetic diversity is conserved - allowing bison to naturally evolve and adapt to a changing environment, and retain important survival behaviors like natural migration and selection. 

I strongly urge you to spend taxpayer money that you are now spending to slaughter wild bison - to protect habitat and migration corridors in the Yellowstone ecosystem that will benefit wild bison in perpetuity. 

SIGN THE PETITION * Required Field

BFC's email newsletter features reports from the front lines, describing actions taking place with Yellowstone's wild bison. Updates also feature news articles, essays, poems, natural history information, legislative, legal and management actions, and ultimately empower you to take action to protect the last wild buffalo population in the U.S. Updates are sent out each week during November-June and every other week from June-November. Your privacy is respected and we never share email addresses with anyone.


Since the interagency plan went into effect in 2000 over 3,300 bison
have been slaughtered from America's last wild bison herd - nearly
all paid for by you, the American taxpayer, averaging $3,000,000 a
year - now ten years into the fifteen year plan.

Ask the U.S. Congress to re-direct taxpayer money to buy habitat for wild bison to roam where private cattle now graze. Save the wild bison's native habitat in Yellowstone!

Hazing operations & the Stephens Creek

This video is from winter 2004 on the north side of Yellowstone National Park near Gardiner Montana. National Park Service employees haze buffalo into the Stephens Creek capture facility. This video is shocking and probably not approriate for small children. But it is the reality of today's wild buffalo in Yellowstone.
Watch this, spread the word & then contact your politicians.
