The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
|The fate of the only wild horse herd left in North Dakota is in jeopardy. The Theodore Roosevelt National Park is home to a historic herd of 180 wild horses who are believed to be descendants of Sitting Bull’s horses and are related to the rare Nokota breed – but the National Park Service (NPS) has made clear that they want to eliminate the entire herd.
This plan is unacceptable, Meredith. These horses are integral to the scenery, native wildlife, and wilderness qualities of the park – the landscape that inspired President Theodore Roosevelt himself.
That’s why we recently launched new billboards to raise awareness about the herd and to pressure park officials to abandon this disastrous plan before it’s finalized. The NPS is feeling the heat, but we can’t let up. We need to ensure these billboards stay up as long as possible. Can you help keep our billboards live by rushing a contribution today?
We know this herd already has the support of North Dakotans, including Senator Hoeven, Governor Burgum, the state legislature, and local media. And thankfully, national attention has been brought to this critical issue, with bipartisan support in the US Senate Committee on Appropriations urging the NPS to preserve this historic herd.
Your support enabled us to get these billboards up and running. Now, we need your help to ensure we keep them live so that we can keep the pressure up as long as possible. Please rush a donation of whatever you can afford today and help us to continue fighting to save the Teddy Roosevelt wild horses!
