A NEW PARADIGM FOR WILD HORSES AND COLLECTIVE HARMONY
Deemed a new paradigm, Wild Love Preserve (WLP) welcomes a new way of being,
much needed collective harmony and co-existence, and is far from singularly focused as it speaks to today’s world and
human relations via a new collaborative approach in native wild horse population management.
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.
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.

"Indeed, it takes a village." - Andrea
"The focus of Wild Love Preserve's
wild horse project in bringing all stakeholders together to work collaboratively with the Challis and Idaho BLM, is unique
and imaginative and potentially opens the door to an entirely new paradigm for managing western wild horses. The model,
if successful, may change a great deal and we here at the Science and Conservation Center are excited about partnering with
WLP in this effort." - Jay F. Kirkpatrick, Ph.D, The Science and Conservation Center
