What’s next?

Hello and Happy Thursday!

It has been a busy couple of weeks! 

We have had a week filled with follow-up meetings.  There is A LOT still happening as we continue our Fight for the Spirit of the Badlands!

The Bully Pulpit Rally was amazing in so many ways last week!  We got to meet some amazing advocates who came from all across the state of North Dakota and all across the US!  The rally hosted people from: New Jersey, Minnesota, Utah, Nebraska, Montana, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Arizona!  We hope to have the video of the rally available on our YouTube channel next week!

THANK YOU to everyone who came to the rally, spoke at the rally and all of you who could not be here in person, but supported the rally in whatever ways you could.  We have only received positive feedback about the rally!

What’s next?

Our ultimate plan is to get the wild horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park protected under federal public law so that we don’t have to go through this ever again.  That is going to take YEARS!

In the meantime, we are working on short term federal protection for the horses.  We are also working with our state legislators, and we hope to continue our dialog with NPS Regional Director Frost and Superintendent Angie Richman. 

The park should be out with the Draft Environmental Assessment this summer.  We will need EVERYONE to comment during that comment period.  Please be sure to check our website regularly for updates.  You can also subscribe to our website from our homepage to be notified when we update our page. 

We will also continue our “Horse Talks”!  This Monday July 24th we will be talking to ND Representative Josh Boschee!  The event is FREE, but we do ask that you register in advance: https://secure.everyaction.com/HflJ2xsEMkOWnuX6ZDQmVg2

We will have some new Horse Talks to announce soon – so stay tuned!

Thank you for your support and have a wonderful day!

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.
