North Dakota’s only wild horse herd is at risk of being *totally* eliminated. ACT NOW >>

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: The wild horses who call North Dakota’s Theodore Roosevelt National Park home are in serious danger. The National Park Service (NPS) is proposing a plan that could potentially eliminate the historic herd in its entirety. Currently, the park is home to at least 186 wild horses. The Teddy Roosevelt horses have roamed the badlands for centuries, and many believe they are descendants of Sitting Bull's horses and are related to the rare Nokota breed. They are a significant part of the historical and natural heritage of the park and are the only wild horse herd in North Dakota, but the NPS’ new plan threatens to wipe them out.  We cannot allow this plan to move forward.Thankfully, there is still time to stop it. The NPS is accepting public comments on the plan until January 31st – meaning we have two weeks to provide our input. Will you use your voice and call on the NPS to abandon its disastrous plan? TAKE ACTION Currently, the agency’s preferred plan is to reduce the wild horse population to zero in a phased approach. This is unacceptable. These horses deserve to be protected.  The NPS must implement ​​a humane management plan to keep these innocent animals wild and free on the lands they have called home for centuries. If you agree, sign on to this letter and make your voice heard! TAKE ACTION Thank you, AWHC Team ...
