Ginger Kathrens Nominated to National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board
Congressman Grijalva stated, “Ms. Kathrens has the experience and background to help make policy changes a reality. Her addition to the board will provide an important and experienced voice.” Congressman Moran commented, “Ms Kathrens is one of the most highly qualified persons in the country to hold this position.” He went on to say, “Kathrens has a proven track record of offering positive and constructive feedback to the Bureau of Land Management…”
An Emmy Award-winning producer, cinematographer, writer and editor as well as award winning author, Kathrens’ resume includes nearly 20 years of documenting wild horses in the Pryor Mountains of Montana, and creation of The Cloud Series, for PBS’s “Nature” series. The first Cloud program was voted the most popular in the program’s 25 year history. Kathrens has a life-long fascination with wild animals and a sound foundation in agriculture and the challenges of making a living raising cattle. These are qualities and sensibilities that allow her to understand the challenges the BLM faces in managing public lands and their multiple use mandate. She is also an adopter and trainer of wild mustangs, and, through TCF, has rescued many Pryor mustangs and helped in finding them good homes. Ginger is currently helping publicize the auction of The Badlands Horses scheduled for round up in September in Teddy Roosevelt National Park to insure that those historical horses do not end up in slaughter houses.
