Buffalo Field Campaign: A Night for the Buffalo
Friday | September 29, 2017 | 7:00 pm
Fellowship Hall | 1924 Cedar St., Berkeley, CA
Marking 2 decades of front line action for the wild buffalo, the Buffalo Field Campaign 2017 Roadshow is coming to the Bay Area with a special 20th anniversary presentation. Co-founder Mike Mease brings engaging stories and films straight from the field, in the land of the buffalo, with music by Native American flutist Mignon Geli and special guests.
The mission of the Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC) is to stop the harassment and slaughter of Yellowstone’s last wild buffalo herds; protect the natural habitat of wild, free-roaming buffalo and other native wildlife; and work with all people—especially Indigenous Nations—to honor and protect the sacredness of the wild buffalo.
Volunteers from around the world spend every day, sunrise to sunset, monitoring and documenting threats to the buffalo, running patrols on skis and snowshoes to defend buffalo in their traditional habitat. BFC is the only group working in the field, every day, to stop the slaughter and harassment of the last wild buffalo.
“We envision a world in which buffalo and all other native wildlife are allowed to exist for their own sake, are given priority on public lands, and herds are allowed to maintain self-regulating, sustainable populations.” says BFC.
