People of all ages love our wild horses.
Over the years we get many letters from young people ranging in age from primary school to college students looking for information on wild horses for class projects and wanting to know what they can do to help.
We volunteers have created WHEKids.com
Early legislation that stopped mustanging, running horses down and poisoning water holes, was implemented with the help of American school children. The 1971 Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burros Act that established federal jurisdiction was passed in an election year with the help of school age children.
The subject matter can be complex and emotional. But our children do have a voice.
The decisions adults make today determine the world we leave for future generations. Those decisions must be mindful that management of public lands must include preserving public land and wild things. Public land must remain public so we can pass it on to future generations. What kind of country will we leave to them? Will it have wild horses running free in truly preserved wild places?
Check out the new site. It will be updated frequently with activities, news stories for kids and feature the voices of America’s children.
We are setting up social media sites and will have a project later this week to “get social!”
