On Tuesday, Colorado Governor Jared Polis took a historic stand when he called upon Secretary Haaland and Acting Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Director Nada Culver to halt the “emergency” roundup in the Sand Wash Basin HMA.
The Governor’s letter was closely followed by separate entreaties from Senator Joe Neguse, The Cloud Foundation, and two of the nation’s leading conservation groups – Western Watersheds Project and the Sierra Club.
Cloud Foundation supporters sent nearly 9,000 messages to the BLM in recent weeks. We continue to fight for these horses and call upon BLM to stop the Sand Wash Basin Roundup.
A democratic government is supposed to be transparent and responsive to the will of the people – and the Bureau of Land Management is neither. This is why – now more than ever – Americans need to speak up for what they believe in.
PLEASE CALL RIGHT NOW! Tell them to STOP this roundup – that Americans want wild horses, not livestock, on our public lands.
- Secretary Deb Haaland at (202)-208-3100
- Acting BLM Director Nada Culver: (202)-208-3801
- BLM Colorado State Director Jamie Connell at (970) 673-7768 and (303) 239-3700 and (303) 239-3600
Nearly every historic social movement has faced the same challenges. Government doesn’t change until the People force it to. We can and will be successful – but only if we never give up the fight.
TCF is committed to fighting for wild horses and burros to receive their fair share on the lands that were dedicated to them in 1971, and to be managed humanely in the wild where they belong. We can’t do that without your help – please take a moment and make those calls today!
