Buffalo in Yellowstone 101 December 6, 2008 by Jim Macdonald, Buffalo Allies of Bozeman. How did the largest wild herd of buffalo end up in Yellowstone?. 30 – 40 million buffalo (bison) in North America at the start of the 19th century.
Buffalo Allies of Bozeman is a consensus-based grassroots organization in the Bozeman, Montana area focused on:
We meet most every Wednesday evening at 7 PM at Montana State University's Strand Union Building (student union) in the 2nd floor cafeteria in the NW corner. Everyone friendly to our mission is welcome to attend and participate in the meetings.
Because we work by consensus, we have no formal leadership. Instead, we all roam together as we take action for the buffalo. So, unlike some environmental groups, we depend upon the direct participation of the public – truly grassroots.
We were founded in April 2008 during the greatest slaughter of buffalo since the 19th century. With your help and with the help of other groups friendly to the buffalo, we will work so that this never happens again. For more information, see http://www.buffaloallies.org.
