Our goal

Our goal is to protect America’s wild horses and burros by stopping the federal government’s systematic elimination of these national icons from our public lands. It’s not too late to act to save the mustangs! Please watch the video and get involved today.

By the Numbers

  • Cattle vs. wild horses on public lands

    50: 1

    Wild horses are stockpiled in government facilities

    5 out of 8

    Horses removed from public lands since 1971

    270,000

    Acres of Wild Horse & burro habitat lost since 1971

    22.2 Million

    of Herds reduced below genetic viability level

    70 %

Problems

Using low flying helicopters to terrorize and stampede wild horses into trap pens is far below the standard of humane treatment of animals that most Americans will tolerate. Yet our government has been doing it for decades.

Solutions

We support safe and proven fertility control to maintain healthy population levels. The method has proven very successful, is easy to administer and is cheaper and more humane than costly and traumatic roundups and confinement.
