* Contact Governor Schweitzer About Migration Road Signs
Please contact Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer and ask him why the migration warning signs were removed and why the speed limit was increased. Millions visit Yellowstone via this corridor each year, and someone you know might be in danger. Tell him that the timing of this action is detrimental to the lives of tourists, locals and commercial vehicles. Even if they want to ignore the buffalo, they should take care not to ignore the people who use that stretch of highway. Urge Schweitzer's office to work with the Department of Transportation and make the highways - specifically highway. 191 - permanently safer. Urge him to immediately replace the warning signs and reduce the speed limit once again.

* You Choose! Your Decisions Affect the Fate of the Wild Buffalo
The cattle industry is one of the most powerful in America, a country that prides itself on economics and is willing to do anything to maintain the Empire's economic stability. The greedy search for the all-mighty dollar manifests itself in the destruction of our Mother Earth. The 19th Century buffalo slaughter was in part undertaken to clear the land for fattening cattle. How and where we choose to spend our dollars can make or break this chain of destruction. The Buffalo Field Campaign strongly advocates a Boycott of beef products, because buffalo are refused access to their native habitat, harassed and slaughtered so the cattle industry may thrive. In truth, the cattle industry locks up our public lands, destroys watersheds, wages war on wildlife, ruins sensitive landscapes, and sells a dangerous product.

BFC board member Scott Frazier asks that we consider the wild buffalo, honor the sacred and choose responsibly. He eloquently asks that we respect the lives of the sacred buffalo by refraining from choosing Montana beef.
In his own words:
