The welfare of domestic equines and the conservation of wild and free-roaming equids around the world, are at the heart of the Wild Equus Network mission.
Our ethology based research projects and educational programs are oriented toward making a positive impact on the lives of wild, free-living, and domestic equids worldwide. Ethology is the biological study of behavior. By studying equids in the wild, we gain further insight into their behavior, and confirm clear guidelines to better manage existing populations, as well as, improve the lives of captive and domestic ones.
Only through education, can we bridge the gaps between science, ethics, and sociocultural considerations. By bridging this gap, the WEN proposes new strategies to effectively protect, manage, and conserve equids as well as the habitats and wildlife diversity on which they rely, and on which many people depend.
