Northwest Nature Matters Podcast


Aug 28, 2019

Free-roaming horses and burros represent one of the most challenging and complex issues in the realm of western public land policy. In this episode we talk with Keith Norris, the Director of Policy and Communications with The Wildlife Society. Keith gives an overview of the issues and reveals important science based details and perspectives often left out of this otherwise emotionally driven topic.
