Review for Wild Love Preserve, Kingston, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Wild Love Preserve and Andrea Maki are unbelievable! Not only are they doing great work and saving Wild Horses, native ecosystems, but also American taxpayers - instead of spending 100's of thousands of dollars for decades warehousing wild horses in "concentration camps" in Oklahoma after forced helicopter roundups and cruel long-haul trucking, Andrea and her merry band of volunteers and community cooperators are turning what some bureaucrats saw as "trash" into a real "treasure".

Eco-tourism based on wild horse viewing is developing from the grass-roots in the economically depressed community of Challis, Idaho that has depended on resource extraction - timber, grazing, mining, water diversions - and is creating a sustainable local economy.

The BLM should take notice and learn - this alternative works... even in a "difficult" county like Custer County, Idaho. Andrea's got factions that had been legal warring for more than 30 years to pull together for one common cause - their wild horse heritage and developing a sustainable, local community.

What a winner!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them the entire BLM budget for wild horse (mis)management and let them go for it.
