Funds raised will aid The Cloud Foundation’s efforts to preserve and protect wild horses and burros on public lands. Kathrens, Executive Director and Founder of The Cloud Foundation has advocated for wild horses and burros since 1994. Her journey with wild horses has been compared to Jane Goodall’s experience with Chimpanzees. Her documentation of the wild stallion Cloud in three films produced for WNET’s Nature series on PBS represents the only continuing chronicle of a wild animal from birth in our hemisphere. Kathrens was appointed to the BLM’s National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board in April 2016.
The Cloud Foundation advocates for the management of wild horses and burros “on the range” using safe and effective fertility control vaccine, and actively promotes recruitment of volunteers to help document and manage herds on their native lands. Currently BLM rounds up thousands of wild horses and burros each year and stockpiles them in feedlot style corrals at taxpayer expense. BLM is now considering slaughtering over to 50,000 wild horses and burros in their facilities as a way to cut costs, instead of pursuing humane and economically feasible “on the range” management strategies endorsed by The Cloud Foundation.
The Cloud Foundation, is a Colorado 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, that grew out of Ginger’s knowledge and fear for wild horses and burros in the West. “I began to realize that we were losing America’s wild horses,” Ginger says. “They are rounded up by the thousands, losing in an instant what they value most–freedom and family.
