We have a not so new call to action for you today:
Have you sent your comments into the park? Remember that no matter what calls to action you are answering – YOUR COMMENT TO THE PARK IS THE #1 Call to Action you can make!
Comments to the park can ONLY be made online here: https://parkplanning.nps.gov/document.cfm?parkID=167&projectID=105110&documentID=125324
Or by mail:
Theodore Roosevelt National Park
PO Box 7
Medora, ND 58645
Do you need some help with your comment letter? View the recording of CHWHA’s presentation on January 8th. This will be very helpful if you aren’t sure how this process works or how to formulate your comment letter, https://chwha.org/events/
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said “”Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
IF the wild horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park matter to you – PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT BEING SILENT AT THIS TIME!!
We have 20 days to get the support of as many people possible to help change the park’s current course for our wild horses. We have 20 days to get the word out about the plight of these iconic wild horses. We have 20 days to let the park know WHAT other alternatives they should consider.
If you need additional help with your comments, American Wild Horse Campaign has listed some comments for you in their Call to Action for this herd: https://secure.everyaction.com/uPCRult4YUaFYzVPO7liHA2?emci=0c0ec38b-408d-ed11-9d7b-00224832e811&emdi=c6ee3b66-de8d-ed11-9d7b-00224832e811&ceid=10260941
We will also be adding a section on our website with comment letters from different organizations that we hope will help you draft your comment letters.
In addition to your formal comment to the park, our wild horse advocacy friends and conversations with our state legislators have helped us formulate the following additional “Calls to Action” – as we continue to fight for the freedom of this herd from EVERY ANGLE we can think of! Please let us know if you have additional suggestions! Contact information and sample letters (where they are relevant) are included in the blog posts below:

Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates is committed to advocating for a wild horse management plan and protection for these unique wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home! We are fighting for a management plan that is guided by science especially when it comes to decisions regarding the removal of horses and the administration of birth control. Many other wild horse management plans have proven to be successful with their science-based plans. We are asking for the same for this amazing group of wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home.
