The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Starting this week, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will launch the largest wild horse roundup in history.
On the call (8:00 PM EST/5:00 PM PST), you will:
- Learn about the planned roundup including background and history on the special interests that play a role in why this roundup is happening;
- Hear more about our national campaign, Keep WY Wyld and our plan to fight back for the horses of the Wyoming Checkerboard;
- Get inspired and learn more about how you can help in our fight to protect these wild horses!
Roughly 4,397 wild horses living in five herd management areas across the Wyoming Checkerboard will be rounded up as part of this action, so it’s critical that supporters like you join us in this fight. The proposed roundup will reduce the wild horse population across these areas to just 1,550 wild horses — leaving just 1 horse for every 2,217 acres of land.
We hope you’ll join us to hear more about our national campaign and get inspired to join the fight to protect these cherished icons.
