Jonathan-Ratner

Our guest is JONATHAN RATNER, Western Watersheds Project’s Director for Wyoming, Utah and Colorado.  Jonathan joined WWP after a stint with the Forest Service in which he documented severe degradation caused by livestock grazing.  When his reports were consigned to the ‘round file’ by the Forest Service, he left and came across Western Watersheds Project and started WWP’s Wyoming Office.

Jonathan will talk about public lands ranching, the most widespread commercial use of public lands in the United States.  Jonathan will also talk about BLM grazing allotments within Wild Horse & Burro HMAs, and “Data Trespass,” Wyoming’s fancy name for it’s Ag Gag law.

Ranching is one of the primary causes of native species endangerment in the American West; it is also the most significant cause of non-point source water pollution and desertification.

Tonight’s show is hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.

  1. It is time we form a coalition of groups that are concerned about the degradation and exploitation of our public lands by those who ranch on them. I would like to see organizations focusing on land, water, wildlife, and YES OF COURSE our wild horse issues, to unite as one, to work on addressing the antiquated welfare ranching scheme, amongst other issues. Time to start reaching out and really getting to the bottom of the problems we see on our treasured public lands today. Look forward to tonight’s show!!

  2. “The Federal Clean Water Act actually allows, even encourages citizens to alert state and federal regulators to problems with polluted water — it’s written right into the law.”
