A recent special edition of the peer-reviewed journal Human Wildlife Interactions highlighted new science around wild horse and burro management.  RTF’s biologist, Celeste Carlisle, wrote a paper with a colleague entitled “Enhancing stakeholder engagement to achieve the sustainable management of free-roaming equids.”

Stakeholders hold very different perspectives about wild horses and burros on public lands, and how we speak to one another matters.  RTF will always do this work with divergent stakeholders, even when it is difficult, and even when the process is complicated.
