A Voice for Wild Horses and Burros
It is up to each of us to be the voice for our wild horses. Return to Freedom invites you to get involved and join us to observe wild horse herds on rangelands across America, witness roundups and participate in the political process by advocating for solutions for the preservation and protection of wild horses and burros.
Participants in our Advocacy in Action program can learn first-hand about wild horses and burros at our American Wild Horse Sanctuary. They can also learn how to safely visit Herd Management Areas on the range, where they can witness the behaviors and habits of wild horses, the habitat and resources on which they depend, and the wildlife with which wild horses coexist.
Participants can also make arrangements to witness a wild horse roundup, and all that it entails, as part of developing their own opinions, feelings, and ideas about wild horse policy.
Advocacy in Action participants will also be given assistance in holding pro-active meetings with lawmakers or agency representatives, at which participants can share what they know in support of humane, realistic solutions to the challenges faced by wild horses and burros.
