Our guest tonight is Kirsten Stade, Advocacy Director for Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).
For nearly 20 years, Kirsten Stade has worked on public lands ecology and conservation, and has published research with WildEarth Guardians on the impacts of livestock grazing on fire ecology and ecosystem health in the American west. She has a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology from Columbia University and a Bachelor’s in Earth Systems from Stanford University. Tonight, Kirsten will be talking about issues in connection with the Department of the Interior, wildlife, public lands and livestock grazing on public lands.
PEER combats the political manipulation of science, makes sure that laws are enforced, defends whistleblowers, protects public health, shields scientists from interference, helps local state and federal law enforcement agencies pursue violations of anti-pollution and wildlife protection laws, safeguards public lands, shelters wildlife and works to end giveaways of your public resources.
PEER is known to wild horse & burro advocates for the many reports they have published about the BLM’s skewed data minimizing the effects of livestock grazing on public lands. PEER also published the famous PEER WHITE PAPER titled “Horses to Slaughter: Anatomy of a Coverup within the Wild Horse & Burro Program of the Bureau of Land Management.”
This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey (V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs) of Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
