For those of us who cannot attend the Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board, it is incredibly frustrating. No matter where we all live, we still care about the wild horses and burros and being left out of the process is unfair.
Stepping in to fill the gap is Nevada HorsePower. They managed to stream the last meeting and will once again be streaming the next one for us to view. Last time, some may have experienced some technical difficulties, but they simply didn't expect the number of people who logged in at once. They think they have worked out the issues and are expecting the crowds. So, please if you can watch do so. It is informative and it involves us because these are OUR horses and burros, OUR tax dollars that support the program and OUR right to know. Read the press release below.
HORSE POWER a non-profit 501(c)3, and their educational partner, Sierra Nevada Community Access Television., is proudly announcing another project together. Bringing the Public the complete National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory meeting, March 2nd, from 8 am - 5 pm.
The National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board meeting will be web-streamed live from the Silver Legacy Hotel and Casino in Reno, Nevada, Monday, March 2nd , 2009, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. by Horse Power (www.nvhorsepower.org) through their public information partner Sierra Nevada Community Access Television (SNCAT). This very controversial meeting is intended to bring together the representatives from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the National Wild Horse Advisory Board and wild horse and burro advocates.
The decisions made at this meeting, could by law include the euthanasia or selling for slaughter of the over 30,000 of America’s wild horses and burros now warehoused in government pens. The meeting will include recommendations and input from the Bureau of Land Management, The National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board and public comments from Wild Horse and Burro Advocates from all corners.
