"Indeed, it takes a village." - Andrea Maki
Founded April 2010, the WLP Mission collaboratively addresses all facets of native wild horse population at home,
on native turf, eliminating the need to ship wild horses removed from public lands to overcrowded, taxpayer funded, longterm
holding facilities elsewhere.
Located in Central Idaho, non-profit Wild Love Preserve creates a unique, two-part, sustainable wildlife preserve
dedicated to protecting native wild horses in their native habitat, while nurturing the legacy of this indigenous ecosystem
as a whole in a responsible, collective manner, now and for future generations.
is a "we", our approach is all-inclusive on behalf of the whole. WLP works with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), regional ranchers, locals, environmentalists, biologists and
other interested stakeholders on aspects of this large scale, multi-faceted project. While differing views clearly exist,
WLP's interest lies in working together to create something special, reduce conflict between all parties, and benefit the community,
region and state in lasting ways.
On April 1, 2010, Wild Love was born of a purposeful, "chance"
encounter and a promise made, eye to eye, heart to heart, between founder Andrea Maki & twenty-one captured wild mares
from a 2009 BLM Roundup. "They have come from the wild, speak for the whole, and take us back to their home
in the wild under evolved circumstances". What began as an intimate promise, set in motion this expansive, ever-evolving
project. The intent is simple, pure, true. Wild Love is about us all, a reflection of our humanity.
WLP is privately funded and does not seek taxpayer dollars. WLP actively seeks financiers,
donors, grants and sponsors. Wild Love Brand Goods directly benefit our cause, visit our on-line store. Equally
