The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
My name is Kimerlee Curyl, and I’m a wild horse fine art photographer and advocate. I have been involved with the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) since its inception well over a decade ago. It has been my honor to also be an AWHC Ambassador, using my imagery not only to assist in AWHC’s advocacy efforts but also to raise funding to support its mission to protect these beautiful animals.
Wild horses are threatened by mismanagement and private interests that seek to eradicate them from the West, so these animals need powerful, professional advocates in their corner. I was proud to join AWHC this year as a co-plaintiff in its lawsuit against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over its plan to eradicate two of my favorite herds in the Red Desert of Wyoming and drastically reduce the population of another. This area is already meeting the thriving natural ecological balance and allowing this to happen would set a horrific precedent for the future of not only Wyoming’s wild horses but every wild horse herd across the West.
AWHC is tirelessly and ceaselessly fighting on behalf of our wild herds, serving as their voice. This is why, beginning today through December 8, I am offering 20 percent off my fine art prints, with 20 percent of the proceeds going to AWHC, and the fight to protect Wyoming’s wild herds.
Alongside AWHC, I am dedicated to shedding light on the challenges that wild horses and burros face. I aspire to use my art as a medium to advocate for mustangs and burros, their preservation, and the conservation of their habitats on our public lands.
Each one of my pieces is designed to bring a touch of the wild right into your home and to spark meaningful conversations about our wild herds and the organizations and individuals advocating for their conservation.
Watching Wyoming’s wild horses run free for all these years has been one of my greatest joys. Supporting AWHC is one of the most effective ways to make sure that they continue on running – for generations to come.
