In 1980, Seattle natives, Stone Gossard and Andrea Maki first met in the halls of The Northwest School at 14 years old, and have been trusted partners in crime since. Art and music are at their cores, accompanied by an awareness to act on behalf of our greater whole. While Stone's path is his music and giving back, to include the Vitalogy Foundation, Andrea's lifetime career as a contemporary visual artist includes founding her non-profit, Wild Love Preserve, in 2010. Stone was the first to step up and support the project, and he and the Vitalogy Foundation have been instrumental in successes of Wild Love Preserve’s work with Challis-Idaho wild horses, and the preservation of our iconic wild mustangs and wild places. Over the years, Wild Love's innovative model has demonstrated via boots-on-the-ground implementation, how coexistence, humane treatment, sustainable management, protecting wild horses and indigenous habitats, and saving tax dollars, can work together to benefit stakeholders, our environment and collective whole for generations to come.
