Village Earth’s “Adopt-A-Buffalo” campaign, already in it’s 4th year, will be delivering 15 more bison to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation September 29th, 2007. The bison were donated by the Danylchuck Bison Ranch in Rye Colorado, their 4th donation of bison to-date. After receiving the necessary vaccinations and quarantining for cross state travel, the bison will make the long journey to south Dakota and will be released on the lands of Lakota Bison caretakers. For a tax deductible donation of $500 you will receive a certificate of adoption for one of the bison in your name or in the name of a friend or loved one. The funds will be used to help develop and expand bison restoration on Pine Ridge with needed infrastructure such as fencing and wells. To date, Village Earth’s “Adopt-A-Buffalo” campaign has helped start 2 new herds of buffalo and expand an existing one and in the last year alone has helped acquire over 2000 additional acres of land for bison restoration. Smaller donations are also welcome. Click here to learn more about contributing to the Adopt-A-Bison Program.
