Stop the Eradication of Colorado's Wild Horses in the Mesa Verde National Park
In 2013, the Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado announced its intent to rid the park of wild horses that have roamed the public lands there for more than a century. The plan was delayed after the public -- including thousands of AWHPC supporters -- weighed in against it. Now the park has revived its proposal to remove these beautiful horses, who are not protected by federal law. The Mesa Verde horses desperately need our help! Please weigh in again in favor of humane management and against eradication of this historic herd! Take action today and be sure to share with friends and family!
It's been a year of significant achievements for AWHPC, thanks to dedicated supporters like you. From on-the-range programs that prove humane management of wild horses can work, to the rescue of dozens of mustangs from slaughter, to the cancellation of the Forest Service's plan to wipe out the beloved Salt River wild horses in Arizona, we are making a difference for America's iconic wild horse and burro herds. Please watch our end of year video and learn more about what we accomplished together in 2015. Every dollar that is donated, every action that is taken makes a difference -- together we are a powerful force for change!
