Rewilding can be difficult as you have to find land where the horses can live free and be safe from further BLM round-ups and have natural resources to survive. New land attribution to re-wild America's wild horses is the CANA Foundation's greatest obstacle.

RE-WILDING represents the belief that through protection of our indigenous species, conservation of our land and natural resources, and reconnecting to our native cultural heritage and traditions we can restore balance to our environment and our selves. Rewilding responsibly supports harmony between humans, plants, and animals that encourages a beneficial and thriving ecosystem for today and tomorrow.

Our capabilities for meeting our goals and accomplishing paving paths for success are great. We are building a foundation to raise more land and financial resources to free horses in 2018 and 2019 and are excited for our future growth.

Our progress indicators are simple. Raise more finances and land and free more horses and re-wild them as well as share the mission of re-wilding. Our indicators for such progress are more horses, more land and more message touches on the importance of rewilding our world to save our enviornment.

The CANA Foundation has accomplished so much already in it's short time in the non profit foundation world. We have re-homed and re-wilded horses, found land to re-wild on and spread the message of the importance of rewilding and saving America's wild horse so we can save America, its natural environment, land and future.
