Protecting the Wild Horses of Outer Banks

The Outer Banks of North Carolina are home to a unique and beloved population of wild horses. These horses, known as the Banker Horses, have been roaming the beaches and marshes of the Outer Banks for centuries. Unfortunately, their numbers have been declining in recent years due to a variety of factors. Fortunately, there are many organizations and individuals who are working hard to protect these beautiful animals and ensure their future in the Outer Banks.

Conservation Efforts

The Corolla Wild Horse Fund is one of the leading organizations dedicated to protecting the Banker Horses. This non-profit organization works with local landowners, government agencies, and other stakeholders to ensure that the horses have access to safe and healthy habitats. The Fund also provides educational programs about the horses and advocates for their protection. Additionally, they provide veterinary care for injured or sick horses, as well as rescue services if necessary.

Advocacy Programs

Another important part of protecting the Banker Horses is raising awareness about their plight. The Corolla Wild Horse Fund runs several advocacy programs that aim to educate people about these animals and why they need our help. These programs include public lectures, school visits, and community events that highlight the importance of protecting these wild horses. Additionally, they work with local media outlets to spread awareness about their cause.

Volunteer Opportunities

Finally, there are many ways for individuals to get involved in protecting the Banker Horses. The Corolla Wild Horse Fund offers volunteer opportunities such as beach cleanups, habitat restoration projects, and educational programs. Volunteers can also help out with fundraising efforts or join one of their many committees that work on specific issues related to horse conservation. By getting involved in these efforts, volunteers can make a real difference in protecting these beautiful animals for future generations to enjoy.

The Banker Horses are an important part of North Carolina’s history and culture, and it is up to us to ensure that they remain a part of it for years to come. With conservation efforts from organizations like the Corolla Wild Horse Fund as well as advocacy programs and volunteer opportunities available for individuals who want to get involved, we can all do our part in protecting these majestic creatures for generations to come.
