Frontlines defense of yellowstone bison - Buffalo Field Campaign's core program is the operation of daily Field patrols along bison migration corridors near the boundaries of yellowstone national park. Patrols operate during the times of year when bison are in Montana. Voluteers equipped with still and video cameras document every action taken aqainst Buffalo and the toll these operations take on wild species in the ecosystem. Buffalo Field Campaign provided training, room, board, winter clothing, and equipment to each of these volunteers outfitting them for some of the most extreme weather conditions in the country.
