CANA Foundation raises money and awareness in an effort to save America’s Wild Horses in Winter Equestrian capital of the World, Wellington Florida
(Wellington, Florida) – On Friday, February 23, 2018 the CANA Foundation held their third annual #Rewild Party, in an effort to focus on saving America’s Wild Horses from extinction. Over 60,000 wild horses are imprisoned here in America, costing taxpayers over $80 million a year. CANA works to release those horses from imprisonment, return them to the land they know as their home and free them once and for all.
The #Rewild Party was held at The Grille Fashion Cuisine, in Wellington and attended by hundreds of local community members as well as other supporters from throughout Florida and the Nation.
“I was completely inspired by the support CANA receives annually from the Wellington community. As the Winter Equestrian Capital, it is truly remarkable to witness the generosity of this close-knit horse loving community and be reminded how they share in the responsibility we all have in protecting horses everywhere, as working and living with horses is truly a privilege,” said Manda Kalimian, CANA Foundation founder.
The CANA Foundation works tirelessly to bring public awareness of more than 60,000 horses who are imprisoned after being rounded up from the land they lawfully call their home on America’s public rangelands. CANA is a unique foundation; their non partisan solutions don’t just work to release America’s confined wild horses from captivity, but are focused on returning them to native land to live out their lives naturally, or, as part of youth, culture, or veterans programs. “Each time we reconnect a horse with their home, the land – we are restoring the rightful course of nature and putting our American ecosystem back on a healthy path. Horses have the power to heal our habitats and humanity.” states Manda Kalimian.

Not enough people realize the true value of the American Wild Horse and their importance in protecting our public rangelands restoring our human habitat and planet, but CANA is working to change that by spreading the message of rewilding out far and wide.
“It’s simple – if we want to save our world, we must rewild our world by returning to a place of balance – and that begins with rewilding America’s Wild Horses,” shared CANA Founder, Manda Kalimian.
CANA thrives and survives on the contributions of good people who attend fundraisers like the #Rewild Party or give online at www.canafoundation.org. CANA’s rewilding efforts, public awareness campaigns and legislative protections all focus on how to responsibly support harmony between humans, plants, and animals that encourages a beneficial and thriving ecosystem for today and tomorrow. All proceeds raised go towards saving wild horses from extinction.
