A voice for the the voiceless: TCF Director Ginger Kathrens to apply as Humane Advisor to BLM

“Ginger has done her damnedest to protect the wild ones but it has been an uphill battle.  Let’s keep her on the Board and support her to the best of our ability.” ~ R.T.

For the past three years, TCF Founder and Executive Director, Ginger Kathrens, has served a critical role as humane advisor to the agency tasked with managing our wild horses and burros on our public lands. As her first term comes to a close, we are thrilled to announce that she will reapply for a second term of service.

The BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board is stocked with people from all sides of the “issue”, many who are not friendly to these magnificent animals. It’s crucial to the humane management of our wild herds to have an advocate with Ginger’s breadth of knowledge and compassion in the body of advisors.

We know that you care as much about the freedom and well-being of our wild horses as we do, and so we ask you to take action now and support Ginger’s reinstatement as Humane Advisor.


How can you help?

It doesn’t take much time at all. Here are the simple details:

1) Write a short letter in support of Ginger Kathren’s renomination to the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. Some points to make:

  • 25 years spent documenting wild horses
  • Her award-winning series of Cloud films reintroduced America to their wild horses
  • Tireless advocate for the preservation of wild horses and our public lands
  • Thought leader in the horse advocacy community, her voice and opinion are widely respected
  • Committed to working with the BLM to find humane management solutions

2) Mail your letter to the address below before April 1, 2019

Division of Wild Horses and Burros, US Dept. of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management
1849 C Street NW, Room 2134 LM
Attn: Dorothea Boothe, WO-260
Washington, DC 20240

  1. How can we get more Advocates appointed to this committee along with Ginger? I will get my letter off asap! One of the ways we can help is to support her and try and get her help. Its so disgusting that these people are like a cancer which left is growing out of control! With other smoke screens in DC that leaves little time to focus on these very critical issues! God help our Wild Horses and Burros!


  2. Yeah I Totally Agree With Gail. How Do We Get More Advocates Like Ginger In High Positions? But I Always Do Every Possible Thing I’m Able To Do, For Our Wild Mustangs & Burros. Except Buy One, Which Is What I Really Want To Do! So I Will Be Sending My Letter Now!!
