Here are a couple of articles about the Buffalo Field Campaign and how they, and other groups are funded.  Contrary to popular belief BFC’s top paid people don’t make much money (trust me, I know this because I am on their Board of Directors).  BFC is also very efficient with its money and has very resourceful people working to maintain and improve its cars and property.  Most of its funds are spent on keeping people out in the field to document what happens to the buffalo and educating visitors to Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park during the summer months.

    Now I know why Ted Turner was allowed to get those buffalo. But, of course it wasn’t because he donates $100,000 per year to GYC.

    I admire and appreciate the work the BFC does. Without their involvement, the plight of Yellowstone bison would not be known to many.

  3. They ran a correction on the one really objectionable part of the article.

    I’m not particularly happy with how I look on video, though!

      I see they took the “gut throwing” comment out. That was a different group entirely back in the early days of the controversy.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
