Announcing Saving America's Horses' KEEP THEM SAFE t-shirt project

Wild For Life Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of it's new, "KEEP THEM SAFE" Tees for Horses campaign.

"Never before has there been a need so great to ban together for the greater good in the protection of one of our most precious and historic natural resources, the horse," said Katia Louise, Wild For Life foundation, President, Founder and volunteer Executive Director.  "America’s wild horses are disappearing.  Without adequate Federal protection, thousands of wild and domestic equines are systemically mistreated, removed, and transported for human consumption abroad every week.  Unless America's wild and domestic equines are protected, the future for our beloved and majestic horses and burros will continue to be in jeopardy. The stakes could not be higher; their very survival is at stake and time is running out."

Background:
At the turn of the 20th century there were millions of wild horses on the open range, but independent studies of the Bureau of Land Management’s data indicates there may now be less than 15,000 in the entire United States. There are over 200 million acres of rangelands in the U.S. where these horses could roam freely, but they are quickly being eliminated by the same governmental agencies that claim to protect them. Unless action is taken, America’s wild equids will continue to vanish – a potentially catastrophic scenario for generations to come.

Can we preserve and protect one of America’s most iconic species before they become extinct in the wild and reverse the degradation to open rangelands caused by their removal? The Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) says the answer is YES, a resounding YES! Armed with the true facts and uniting together to make our united voice heard for the horses and burros, we can educate and effect change.

With human encroachment on natural habitats a constant feature of our modern world, America's wild and historic Mustangs are quickly losing their Native home lands. As the remaining number of Wild Horses in the U.S. nears extinction, education and appreciation through the protection of Mustangs and Burros in the wild and in natural preserves and sanctuary environments becomes tantamount to their survival as a species. America’s Wild Horses cannot be reproduced once they are gone.

As the BLM exterminates the last of America’s wild horses and burros in the wild, WFLF’s Saving America's Horses introduces hope. As clearly evidenced in Saving America’s Horses, the movie, the reintroduction of horses to rangelands can in truth rejuvenate the environment. For example, the Tarpan wild horses have been successfully returned to landscapes in both Britain and the Oostvaardersplassen of the Netherlands and studies reveal that their re-introduction to the range-lands has restored the natural environment and wildlife.  Plus, recent findings through Princeton University have shown how combining wild equine grazing together with cattle can create beneficial effects; not only for the environment but for cattle as well. "Clearly, blanket statements that wild equids invariably compete with livestock can no longer be accepted” states Michael Coughenour, a senior research scientist at the Colorado State University Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory. “America’s horses heal our hearts and in truth they can also heal our lands,” adds Katia Louise

The Wild For Life Foundation works to preserve and protect the lives of rare and historic wild equines as part of the natural ecosystem and educate people about the need for the preservation of these threatened equine species. We need and respectfully seek your support. We can’t do this work without you. You make our healing and lifesaving work possible.

Funds raised through this t-shirt fundraiser help to provide rescue horses and burros with essential needs including food, hoof care, health care and housing.
