Tell Congress to Pass the National Bison Legacy Act

FROM Buffalo Field Campaign


Tell your Senators and Representative to sponsor and/or support passage of the National Bison Legacy Act [S.B. 3248 / H.R. 6304] that will designate the American buffalo as the National Mammal of the U.S.

Read the bill here:

There is an effort underway to have the American Buffalo designated as the National Mammal of the United States. The National Bison Legacy Act, S.B. 3248 / H.R. 6304, was introduced by Senators Enzi (WY) and Johnson (SD) and Congressmen Clay (MO-1) and Fortenberry (NE-1).

Buffalo Field Campaign supports this legislation and we are asking you to take action for the buffalo by contacting your US Senators and Representative and asking them to become a co-sponsor.

While BFC does not support or endorse all of the positions taken by the groups that originally proposed the Legacy Act, the general concept of elevating the status of buffalo in the eyes of the American public and the U.S. Congress is something we feel can only help in our efforts to protect and defend the wild buffalo of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
