"Andrea Maki, an artist from the state of Washington, has done the impossible. She's gotten the Bureau of Land Management, the community of Challis and Custer County, the area cattle ranchers and environmentalists to work together with WLP. If this model for mustang management works, it could save the wild mustangs, the environment they live in and bring new money to the tiny town of Challis…. and finally be a solution for wild horse management across the West.” -Karole Honas, Channel8/ABC Nightly News, Idaho Falls, Idaho, May 2014
“Wild Love Preserve truly is the culmination of all the various paths that I’ve traveled for the past 47 years of my life,” Maki says. “It’s about finding a new way to bring people together. I believe that if you go in looking for a fight, you’re going to get a fight. If you approach with kindness, compassion, understanding and interest in listening to various perspectives, whether you agree or not, eventually people will come together and you will find common ground. I work with folks who I don’t necessarily have the same beliefs as me, but I find it very interesting and purposeful to listen to their history and their perspectives, taking all into account as this project has evolved, whether it be the ranchers, BLM or environmentalists.”
