CANA​ ​Foundation​

  • America’s wild horses are endangered.

    Over 60,000 wild horses currently stand warehoused in taxpayer funded holding facilities; costing over $80 million/year and rising.

  • But wild horses have the ability to help provide a balance to our ecology and our spirits.

    CANA Foundation is a 501(c)3 non profit working to unite wild horses with rewilding initiatives that allow them to live free, while restoring an environmental and spiritual balance as they have been naturally proven to do. Through these initiatives, large scale media projects and changing legislation, CANA advocates for rewilding as a non partisan solution to the nations wild horse management and fiscal crisis.

  • Rewilding:
    The reintroduction of select plants and animals into an environment to help restore an ecological balance that benefits all inhabitants.

    Ecological studies show that wild horses have an adaptive instinct to harmoniously fit into a variety of ecosystems, which they enhance. As large herbivores, their grazing and digesting of foliage is beneficial, because their fecal matter holds seeds intact and their walking patterns and tails disperse other seeds while their flat hooves work to plant them, thus helping to sustain the surrounding ecosystem. When allowed to fulfill their ancient ecological niche, they can be used to help restore balance to our precious, yet degrading American ecosystems.

    Additionally, horses have a unique ability to heal and enrich the human spirit; which has been proven through the presence of horses in various rehabilitation and therapy programs.  CANA’s work takes this one step farther and incorporates wild horses as part of social, environmental, economical and ecotourism projects that provide benefits to the communities who welcome them.
