$30 today helps us save wild horses for years to come
The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Did you know that a gift of $30 today will help us keep wild horses wild for years to come? How? It costs just $30 to vaccinate a single mare annually with Porcine Zona Pellucida (PZP) — a scientifically-proven fertility control vaccine.
On Nevada’s Virginia Range, we operate the world’s largest humane fertility control program for wild horses. Earlier this year, we celebrated our two-year anniversary of this historic program! Our work on the Virginia Range provides scientific evidence to the public that THERE IS a humane way to manage wild horses that doesn’t require mass roundups, crowded holding pens, or dangerous sterilization surgeries.
The success of our PZP program in Nevada has been critical in our fight to protect wild horses. And the continued operation of this program helps us to provide lawmakers, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and the rest of the public with cold, hard, scientific evidence that supports the legitimacy and efficacy of this humane population management tool.
Today is the last day of the BLM’s FY 2021 roundup season. Since this time last year, over 17,917 wild horses and burros have been brutally chased by helicopters and taken to holding facilities, costing these innocent animals their families and their freedom.
PZP is a much more sustainable and humane option to keep wild horses in the wild where they belong. Today, on September 30th, will you help us to continue the success of our PZP program with a donation of $30 or more?
Thank you for your support in the fight to protect America’s wild horses, Meredith.
