What do wild horses, biodiversity and open spaces have to do with healthy landscapes?

Understanding how important preserving and rebuilding open spaces is to our physical health as well as climate health is the first step in fostering healthy landscapes.

Wild horses along with other species that are an integral part of the natural system play a crucial role in helping to rebuild biodiversity and to preserving endangered species.
