Buzz Petition

Throughout our school years, we are taught about the plight of American bison in our history classes. Images of bison skulls piled sky-high taught us the serious dangers of hunting and the importance of conservation in preventing the extinction of species.

According to a petition on Care2 written by The Nature Conservancy, bison populations dropped from a thriving 30 to 60 million to just 500 at the turn of the 20th-century. Thanks to conservation efforts, American bison have since made a comeback, but their livelihood is still under serious threat.

As the petition explains, bison are losing their natural habitats to land development and parking lots. Bison are native to the North American tallgrass prairie, which The Nature Conservancy explains is an ecosystem more imperiled than the Amazon rainforest. The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), which does not cost taxpayers a single penny, is one of the nation’s most effective conservation programs and can protect these precious habitats and the species native to it, yet it is grossly under-funded by the government year after year.

The Nature Conservancy is urging the U.S. Congress to increase funding for the LWCF in order to save the iconic bison. If you would like to see bison thriving on American land, please take a moment to sign the petition in support of the LWCF.

And please share this with your network to gain more support for America’s great bison!

Both of the large brown banners for this petition above are not for Buffalo. When either of the large brown banners are clicked, they go to the petition titled, "Stop The Torture of Greyhounds in Spain" However, the green \'petition\' link, in the last paragraph, is linked to the correct petition for this page. Thank you for your time.
