Ep #16: Wild Horses of the North Lander Complex: Interview with Jim BrownSeptember 18, 2023
Ep #18: Saving the Wild Horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park: Interview with Christine KmanOctober 23, 2023
From the moment I first heard about Sable Island over 20 years ago, I was captivated and determined to go. There are currently only two ways to visit the island, by air or by sea. Last week was my third time visiting Sable Island.
Wild horses, and the largest grey seal colony on Earth, are the only mammals found, aside from the few humans staying at Main Station. I’ve reflected on what makes this place and these horses so special. The wild horses have not been molested, interfered with, or captured by man since the 1950s. They are protected and allowed to live out their lives as nature wants, not humans.
This week, I explore the beauty of Sable Island and share my dream for all wild horses in America to have this protection. I explain why they should be managed in the least invasive way possible by people who put their welfare and health and freedom first. This is what I am fighting for, and in this episode, I invite you join me in the fight.
