Our coastal wild horses are not only popular with tourists, they’re a source of pride for all of us in NC. Now you have an opportunity to get involved directly with those horses. Cape Lookout National Seashore, the North Carolina Coastal Reserve and National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Foundation for Shackelford Horses, Inc. have joined together to give people a chance to be part of the “Pony Patrol”.
Once accepted into the program, you’ll be trained to help protect wild horse welfare and visitor safety at Shackleford Banks, Cape Lookout National Seashore and/or Rachel Carson Reserve, N.C. Coastal Reserve. Volunteers accomplish this through maintaining a physical presence at the Park and/or Reserve, educating visitors, and reaching out to law enforcement when necessary.
Volunteer applications are being accepted now through January 10, 2020. There are some requirements for being part of this program – click here for info and to apply.
