Buffalo Field Campaign is honoring the memory of James A. Horsley, our fellow petitioner, who passed away April 28, 2021. He was the first person to submit a petition to list and protect Yellowstone’s wild buffalo under the Endangered Species Act.
His initial hand written petition was submitted in January 1999 to Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt while recovering from double hip surgery in a rehabilitation care facility. We have posted all three of James’s petitions on our Endangered Bison Endangered Migration web page.
