The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
We’ll be the first to admit that it can be difficult to stay up to speed with the complex issues affecting our nation’s wild horses and burros! With so many federal agencies, acronyms, and applicable laws, it’s easy to get confused.
That’s why we created our Keeping Wild Horses Wild 101 Series. In this series we’ll break the issues down for you with presentations covering topics from the history of our beloved equines to the present-day fight for their protection and preservation!
In this specific webinar, we’ll be focusing on the lesser-known of our federally-protected animals: wild burros! Wild burros have the same rich history and are as culturally significant as wild horses, but unfortunately, Meredith, they receive far less attention.
In this session we’ll cover:
- Burro Awareness Month
- Interesting Burro Facts
- The History
- The Act
- What Science Says
- Calls to Action
