The Sand Wash Advocate Team

WHO IS SWAT AND WHAT DO WE DO?

SWAT is an on-the-range project of the Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary and was formed in 2012, recognizing a need to organize the energy and efforts of individuals and groups in supporting the Sand Wash Basin (SWB) land and wild horses. SWAT is 100% volunteer-driven. Volunteers perform all of our administrative work, planning and coordination, field work, research, data collection and analyses, marketing and Internet activities. Financial support for this program is provided through donations. 100% of every dollar received goes towards advancing SWAT’s mission to, as citizen stewards, support the Sand Wash Basin land and wild horses in collaboration with the Bureau of Land Management. Our collaboration of support focuses on fertility control, herd documentation and gather support.

WHERE DO YOUR DONATIONS GO?

All contributions go directly to the cost of program operations, which includes:

  • educational information printing costs- brochures, flyers, etc
  • t-shirts designed to show your support and to spread the word about Sand Wash Basin wild horses
  • community event entry fees
  • supplies for range clean-ups and meetings
  • sponsoring those members that choose to go through dart training certification through The Science and Conservation Center in Billings, Montana
  • reimbursing certain expenses that members incur from assisting with herd documentation, fertility control efforts and gather support
