A friend recently suggested I might like to check out the Sable Island Horse Project on Facebook. She was right!
I have previously written about equine preservation in Mongolia. The idea of travelling here and taking part fascinates me! A study is currently being carried out on the feral horses of Sable Island. As it says on their website:
Sable Island is a 49 km-long, crescent-shaped sand bar located 160 km off the east coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. Renowned for its windswept and grass-covered dunes, wild horses, and shipwrecks, Sable Island is as unique in character as it is in biological diversity.
The study is on the ecology of the island and these feral horses in particular. If you have an interest in this area and perhaps are looking for a Ph. D. project, check out the details.
