The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: News & Alerts The BLM’s summer assault on our wild horses and burros is still mounting -- already more than 3,200 wild horses and burros have been run down and rounded up, 19 have been tragically killed. At the same time, historic legislation is waiting to be championed in the Senate, which means we have no time to waste. Advocating for the protection of wild horses and public lands on Capitol Hill can be a long and challenging process. That’s why when we make progress, it’s important to give credit where credit is due and keep up the momentum by asking more lawmakers to join the fight. Here’s how you can help continue this critical momentum towards protecting wild horses and burros: We’ve created a new series of digital ads both thanking our wild horse champions in the House and Senate, and encouraging those Senators who still need to step up and do the right thing. We’re calling on key legislators to protect wild horses from cruel and inhumane helicopter assaults and dangerous surgical sterilization methods, before it’s too late. We’re ready to launch these nationwide ads on Facebook, in the states of the voters whose Senators either still need convincing or deserve thanks. We’re counting on your support to help us run them. If every person reading this email gives just $25 today, we will have the funds to reach more than 500,000 voters in key states over the next week. We’ve already passed the wild horse amendment in the House of Representatives, now we need the Senate to pick up the ball and do its part to save thousands of wild horses and burros. It’s up to all of us to remind our Senators that we are here to speak up for our wild horses who have no voice, and we’re not going anywhere until they’re protected, wild and free. Will you join the chorus of calls for protection? Thank you for stepping up today to protect our wild horses and burros. — AWHC Donate ...

BREAKING: Another win with Pendley gone

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: News & Alerts BIG news: Over the weekend, the Trump Administration officially dropped the nomination of William Perry Pendley as director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).This news comes just weeks after launching our efforts to REJECT Pendley’s nomination. We want to thank everyone who signed petitions, donated to ads, and put pressure on leadership to do the right thing. Your actions helped remove a direct threat to wild horses and burros across the country and is further proof that together, we can bring about great change. As acting BLM director, Pendley notoriously called America's beloved wild horses an “existential threat to the public lands,” despite the fact they are not present on 88 percent of the lands his agency manages. Thankfully, Pendley will no longer be able to use wild horses as the scapegoats to prop up his friends in Big Ag and Big Oil. AWHC applauds the decision by the Trump Administration to withdraw the Pendley nomination and put the lives of our beautiful wild horses above profit: We are extremely grateful to all the wild horse defenders who took action by signing our petition and donating to digital advocacy ads. Your voices amplified the chorus of opposition to Pendley’s nomination. Victories like this are incredibly important for forward momentum on wild horse protections, and all signs are pointing to more wins to come. In order to build on this success, we need to keep the pressure up. will you donate today to power our ongoing advocacy efforts? Donate ...

NEWS: Wild horses getting the attention they deserve!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: July marked significant highs and lows for our wild horses — with wins in Congress, and tragic losses out on public lands as the BLM’s brutal roundup season continues, now in Nevada. In the middle of all this important action, some exciting developments took place and we want to make sure you hear about them! A historic win for wild horses Our recent win on Capitol Hill is making the news and raising awareness in the places that matter most. ICYMI: On July 23rd, the House of Representatives held its first vote on a wild horse issue in over a DECADE and APPROVED a protection measure, thanks to the tireless advocacy of all of us, and our wild horse champions in Congress. Specifically, the House passed an amendment that will rein in cruel and inhumane roundups by requiring the Bureau of Land Management to spend $11 million on the humane and proven safe fertility control vaccine, PZP. Together, we kept up the pressure on Congress when it mattered -- sending in more than twelve thousands of emails, making thousands of calls, and reaching hundreds of thousands of people on social media urging Congress to take action. These efforts resulted in a historic step forward for the management of wild horses and now we’re gearing up to take the fight to the Senate. Here’s what people are saying about our recent victory:Veteran Nevada journalist John L. Smith and members of Congress agree: This decision marks a significant step forward for wild horses. In last week’s Nevada Public Radio interview, Smith noted that this bipartisan amendment sends a strong message that Congress is looking to fix the controversial BLM roundup program instead of continuing to spend “literally hundreds of millions of dollars chasing the horses around.” He’s right — and that’s exactly why we advocated for the passage of this amendment while continuing to prove with our innovative, minimally invasive, PZP fertility control program that humane management of wild horses is possible.

A WIN for wild horses, thank you!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: News & Alerts Huge news! Finally, a win for wild horses. JUST NOW, the House of Representatives passed a wild horse protection amendment that would rein in cruel and inhumane roundups by requiring the Bureau of Land Management to spend $11 million on the humane and proven safe fertility control vaccine, PZP. This is the first vote on wild horse protection in over a decade and it would not have been possible without ALL of us. We owe a debt of gratitude to our Congressional champions and the co-sponsors of this amendment: Representatives Steve Cohen (D-TN), Dina Titus (D-NV), Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), Joe Neguse (D-CO), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), David Schweikert (R-AZ), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), David Price (D-NC), Peter King (R-NY), Deb Haaland (D-NM), Ben McAdams (D-UT), and John Katko (R-NY). Big thanks as well to YOU — for doing your part to keep America’s iconic wild horses wild. Our advocacy efforts resulted in over 20,000 emails, calls and social posts in the past week from people like you reaching out to your representatives, urging them to make the right decision. And it worked. The House has taken a stand to ensure that the BLM will no longer be able to proceed with business as usual, spending zero percent of its budget on humane fertility control, while two-thirds is spent to cruelly roundup and remove wild horses from public lands and warehouse them for life at taxpayer expense. Today marks a meaningful and historic step forward towards a truly sustainable and humane management program for these icons of the West. Now onto the Senate!
