This has been HANDS DOWN one of the craziest, busiest BUT MOST GRATIFYING weeks that I can remember!
HOW EXCITING IS ALL THIS NEWS?!!!
FINALLY!! The wild horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park will have a proper wild horse management plan!!!
We are in the process of formulating our comment for this process and it will be SUBSTANTIAL! We are NOT in favor of ANY of the proposed “Draft Concepts” that the park has introduced and we plan to submit significant documentation to support our position. Once we have completed our comment document, it will be sent to our attorney’s office so they can look it over and discuss any changes they think we should consider. Since there is no document upload button on the planning portal, we will be PRINTING EVERY PAGE OF EVERY SINGLE DOCUMENT THAT WE NEED TO that scientifically backs up our comment document. We estimate that to be easily 800-1000 pages of supporting documentation!
This entire week has been flooded with phone calls, emails, and messages from everyone from our followers, lawyers, fellow advocates, and the press! We are excited that there is so much positive support surrounding this long awaited and highly anticipated wild horse management plan FINALLY becoming reality!
Please feel free to continue to ask us your questions! This is an extremely important time for the wild horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park!
That change has been made possible by each and every one of you who asked us how we could bring about much needed change in several areas of the current management of the wild horses we all love in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora, ND!
WE DID IT!!! Change is inevitable now!
NOW – we need to make sure that the changes that happen are the ones that best address the issues we have all been concerned about for so long! We believe the BEST way to navigate through this process is with our legal team at Eubanks and Associates, PLLC, walking through this with us! You can read more about our legal team on their website here: https://www.eubankslegal.com/
Here is just a small snippet about them from their website:
“William Eubanks recognized the continued need for a firm of this kind to ensure that nonprofit organizations, environmentalists, scientists, journalists, and activists would have their important perspectives represented in court. The firm’s attorneys strive to use the law creatively to protect public lands, wildlife, rivers and wetlands, natural resources, animals in captivity, and public health, as well as to continue aggressive use of open government laws and other statutes intended to serve the public interest in transparency. “
They are absolutely AMAZING to work with! The wealth of knowledge and experience they have is what we need most right now!
I have to be honest, I AM EXHAUSTED!!!
To be clear, NO ONE on our board is paid for the work we do. No one on our board is reimbursed for any of their time, gas, park passes, camera equipment, phone calls or TIME.
This is clearly written in our founding documents. We want to make sure that 100% of all donations go directly to help EACH AND EVERY wild horse living in Theodore Roosevelt National Park and to ensure that the wild horses of TRNP continue to survive and thrive for generations to come.
Obviously, our greatest expense at this time is our legal bills. We also have monthly bills for our website, email, general office supplies, etc.
For me, Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates President and Founder, my biggest donation is my time in the form of the countless hours I spend getting you the best information for our current advocacy work. Right now, due to the significance of this wild horse management plan, the better part of my days are spent working to make sure that this whole process goes smoothly and with as much support as we can rally!
I am begging you to PLEASE make a donation to help support our advocacy efforts. This wild horse management plan is an extremely huge and detailed process. The horses NEED people like Eubanks and Associates to help us successfully navigate through this process to make sure they FINALLY get the proper management plan! This will be a long and detailed process!
