The BLM is pushing a 10-year plan that would destroy America’s last large and genetically-healthy wild burro population. The proposal would roundup 1,250 of the 1,700 burros (nearly 75%) and artificially skew the female-to-male ratio which would likely cause tremendous social disruption.
We are calling on BLM to abandon the proposed massive roundup plan, and instead utilize humane on-the-range management. We’re asking them to create a Black Mountain Burro Range, which would eliminate livestock grazing and protect this cherished burro population and all wildlife for years to come. Please act to protect these beautiful burros NOW!
COVID19: Rewilding Our Relationship with the World
In a rapidly changing world, one thing is for certain. Humanity needs to take a hard look at our relationship to animals and nature. In this article from The CANA Foundation, the link is established between the exploitation of animals in the wet markets of Asia and the callous treatment of our wild horses, though they are not yet slaughter-bound, for private gain.
As an organization dedicated to protecting wildlife on our wild lands, TCF advocates respect for all species. As the article states, “We must REWILD our way of thinking. We have to take a step back and see that the greatest and most important assets that we have are the lands and the animals that call them home. Somewhere in the connection between those two things and us, lies our humanity, and we desperately need to find it again.”
