Challenge

Sustaining WFLF's equine rescue and recovery program for Navajo wild horses served by WFLF. Wild horses and burros are under attack in the U.S. Their indigenous heritage is ignored due to competing land use interests. They're instead labeled as "invasive species" to justify their extermination. Horses captured by the BIA during Navajo roundups have reportedly shipped to slaughter the same day. The number of wild horses shipped for slaughter is unknown due to unreported and mislabeled exports.

Solution

WFLF is dedicated to saving, protecting and preserving equines through rescue, sanctuary and educational programming which demonstrates and advocates for healthy nonlethal management practices, and ethical, sustainable ecological values. This project is a program under the WFLF's preservation initiative which fills an immediate need to care for animals that would otherwise suffer inhumane treatment and which advocates for the protection and preservation horses and burros on Native lands.

Long-Term Impact

Our mission seeks to enact recognition of the Native status of wild horses & burros in the U.S. as wildlife which would yield their legal protection from extinction; enact federal protection from exploitation, harassment, & killing on tribal and public lands; assure the legal safeguard from slaughter through permanent federal bi-partisan legislation; and fulfill sustainment of viable sanctuary & preserves for the protection & preservation of wild equines who are not able to return to the wild.
