EDITED PRESS RELEASE
Tom Porter, Craig C. Downer
Just released is a new 24-minute video documentary featuring the many positive contributions that wild horses and burros make to ecosystems and effectively disproves many of the lies made by their biased enemies.
As an ecologist who cares about the future of the naturally living horses and burros, Craig Downer is fighting to protect them from elimination on the lands that are legally theirs according to the unanimously passed Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 (WFHBA).
These species are classified by biologists as Keystone Species that critically restoring and maintain native biodiversity, benefiting many diverse yet interrelated plants and animal.
Many people unfairly blame horses for water and forage scarcity, when in truth they take only a minor fraction of the forage and water resources on the public lands compared to that taken by privately owned cattle and sheep as well as the gargantuan mining and energy industries, among other nature exploiters.
Also it is important to recognize that these national heritage species are only being allocated a small fraction of forage, water and appropriate habitat even within their legal areas on BLM and US Forest Service lands. These are areas where they should be the principal resource recipients according to the true intent of the WFHBA.
