Since the 19th century, wild horses roaming America's public lands have decreased by 98%.

 

The U.S. Government has wiped out wild horses and burros from 40% of designated habitats since 1971.

 

Since the passage of The Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act in 1971, more than 270,000 wild horses and burros have been removed from public lands.

 

70% of the BLM’s budget is spent on roundups and warehousing wild horses.

 

Less than 3% of BLM’s annual budget is spent on using proven, safe, and humane fertility control and solutions to manage wild horses and burros on the range.

 

Managing wild horses and burros on the range would save millions of dollars a year.

 

Feeding captured wild horses in government holding facilities costs American taxpayers over $135,000 DAILY.

 

8X more federal land is authorized for livestock grazing than for wild horses.

 

Livestock grazing on public lands costs American taxpayers a loss of over $132 million/year in direct costs — yet provides less than 3% of America’s beef supply. Source: Return To Freedom 501(c)3

The American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) is America’s leading voice on protecting wild mustangs & burros. They are a nonprofit organization fighting to ensure the future of America's iconic wild horses and burros and the Western public lands where they roam. They work to reform the cruel and costly federal wild horse and burro roundup program and replace it with humane management that keeps wild horses and burros wild, protected, and free. AWHC manages the most extensive humane fertility control program for wild, free-roaming horses globally.

I am deeply thankful for the American Wild Horse Campaign and the people that are committed to the long-term well-being of our wild horses and burros.  If you love wild horses and want to help protect them, join me in my support of AWHC and learn how you can take action today and start making a difference.

KEEP PUBLIC LANDS WILD & HELP THE WILD HORSES

Take action by calling your U.S. Representatives and two U.S. Senators and tell them you do not want your tax dollars allocated to fund the "Path Forward" program in FY 2021 that supports the mass removal of wild horses and allocate funds for "private partnership" contracts that will be given to ranchers. Emphasizing this plan is the agenda of the livestock industry, not the majority of humane organizations or the will of the American public.  Research who your U.S. representatives are and get a script to guide your communications.

America's wild horses are facing their biggest threat since the passage of the Wild and Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971.  Every herd is at risk due to a plan called 10 Years to AML: The Path Forward for Management of BLM's Wild Horses and Burros.

The "Path Forward" proposal is a clear and calculated attempt to eradicate wild horses, all for ranchers and special interests to dominate and profit off public lands in the USA.  If allowed to be implemented, the plan would decimate wild horse herds, burden taxpayers, and put the horses at risk of slaughter and permanent sterilization.

We must oppose the plan to protect the horses and our public lands already being exploited and destroyed by the livestock, oil, and mining industries.
