Dear Supporter,                                              June 14, 2012

Please Call Your Senator TODAY!

Urge Vote Against Devastating Amendment to Farm Bill that will Harm Wild Horses, Public Lands and the Environment!

Your Senator is on the committee that will decide the fate of an environmentally-devastating amendment to the Farm Bill currently moving through the Senate.
Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) has attached his "Grazing Improvement Act" as an amendment to the Farm Bill, which is formally known as the Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act of 2012 (S. 3240). If enacted, the "Grazing Improvement Act" would gut environmental requirements for public lands grazing and limit the public's say in government grazing management decisions.
As you know, the leading force behind the mass removal of wild horses from public lands is the livestock industry, which views wild horses as competition for taxpayer-subsidized grazing on public lands. The Barrasso amendment will harm wild horses and burros, other wildlife species and the environment by loosening restrictions on public lands livestock grazing.
Please click below to take quick action to oppose the terrible "Grazing Improvement Act" amendment to the "Farm Bill."

Thank you for taking action to protect wild horses, burros and the environments that they call home.

The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) is dedicated to preserving American wild horses and burros in viable free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage. Supported by a coalition of over 50 organizations, its grassroots campaign seeks:

    * A suspension of roundups in all but verifiable emergency situations while the entire BLM wild horse and burro program undergoes fiscal and scientific reform;

    * Higher Appropriate Management Levels (AML) for wild horses and burros on those rangelands designated for them based on a fairer allocation of resources on our public lands;

   * Implementation of in-the-wild management, which would keep wild horses and burros on the range and save taxpayers millions of dollars annually by avoiding the removal and stockpiling of wild horses in government holding facilities.
