Our guest is Kirsten Stade, Advocacy Director for Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).
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.”
PEER works to strengthen and enforce scientific integrity rules and data quality laws. PEER, along with the Center for Food Safety, filed a lawsuit to stop the use of neonicotinoid insecticides (neonics) linked to the destruction of bee colonies. They also filed a lawsuit to stop the planting of genetically engineered crops on wildlife refuges in the Midwest. PEER is now focusing on pharmaceutical chemicals polluting our waters. PEER also protects environmental and public health whistleblowers.
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.
This show is hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
