Speaking of Mustangs
Here are several published articles written by Dr. Jay Kirkpatrick and his team for you to learn more about Porcine Zona Pellucida (PZP) and its application to population management of the American Wild Horses. Watch for additions to this page.
There are several great organizations that support sustainable management of the mustang population, lobby for better laws to protect them, collect data on herd groups, provide sanctuary to gathered bands, and provide public education and opportunities to view the horses. Please email me if you have suggestions for more organizations to list here!
