Greg Hendricks is Director of Field Operations for the American Wild Horse Campaign. As an avid wild horse advocate, he has worked to support the Prison Adoption Program in Carson City from which he has adopted two wonderful mustangs. He also represents Wild Horses & Burros for the Bureau of Land Management’s Sierra Front N.W. Great Basin Resource Advisory Council.

Erik Molvar is the Executive Director of the Western Watersheds Project. He is a wildlife biologist with published research in the behavior, ecology, and population dynamics of Alaskan moose as well as large-scale conservation planning. He spent 13 years as a conservation advocate and later Executive Director of Biodiversity Conservation Alliance, and led WildEarth Guardians’ Sagebrush Sea Campaign for three years.

Erick Lundgren is a postdoctoral researcher at Aarhus University in Denmark, receiving his PhD at the University of Technology Sydney in Australia. His work primarily focuses on novel ecosystems or communities composed of both introduced and native species. Most of his research focuses on large herbivores, in particular equids, in which he has shown remarkable ecological processes hidden by notions of ‘naturalness’.

Scott Wilson is a landscape photographer of 20 years and team member of the American Wild Horse Campaign. Scott was recently named Open Photographer of the Year in the 2022 Sony World Photography Awards and also brought home the Natural World & Wildlife Award for “Anger Management,” which depicts a wild Colorado mustang kicking up a dust-storm.

Kris Thompson is a leader in the Reno area business community. He is the Project Manager of the Tahoe Reo Industrial Center which encompasses 1/3 of the Virginia Range horse habitat in Reno, NV and is President of the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center General Improvement District.

Our cherished wild horses capture the American public’s imagination like no other animal. The image of magnificent mustangs running wild on the vast open range embodies the best of America, our independent and free spirit.

While technically protected by federal law, wild horses and burros continue to face constant threats, diminishing their chances of survival in the West. In just the last year alone, some of the largest wild horse helicopter roundups in recent history have occurred and will continue into 2022.

Our team is leading the way to protect these iconic animals and the western public lands where they roam. 

Please join us this Sunday, May 29 to learn about the latest science and the groundbreaking programs we’ve implemented in Nevada to keep wild horses wild. A series of short documentaries will be shown and an expert panel discussion featuring biologists, researchers, business leaders, and range specialists will follow!

Thank you and we hope you can join us!
