Urge New Interior Secretary Sally Jewell To Protect Wild Horses And Burros
This form is for U.S. residents only and REQUIRES a valid U.S. address!
The Senate recently confirmed Sally Jewell as the next Secretary of the Interior. This could be a positive change from her predecessor, Ken Salazar, who failed to deliver on his promise to reform the federal wild horse and burro program. Salazar, a rancher, defended other ranchers to the detriment of wild horses and burros.
During Salazar's tenure, the Bureau of Land Management removed more than 35,000 wild horses from public lands. Jewell is known as an outdoor enthusiast and conservationist and IDA is hopeful that her appointment will be good news for wild horses and burros, but she needs to hear how important this issue is to you.
Jewell has already pledged to "pursue effective and ecologically sustainable policies" for management of America's wild horses and burros. Please take a moment to urge her to keep that promise!
