Navajo Sheep Project's Investments in Resilience - Drought Relief for the Old Style Navajo-Churro Sheep

Help us with our drought relief campaign by assisting shepherds in the southwest with the Navajo-Churro.

As the current crisis from the drought in the Southwest outstrips the shepherds' ability to cope on their own, The Navajo Sheep Project is committed to helping the shepherds meet immediate needs as well as protect animals most vulnerable to starvation and possible confiscation. The campaign, Investments in Resilience -- Drought Relief For Old-Type Navajo-Churro Sheep, launched on April 24 by the Navajo Sheep Project and a coalition of shepherds, Hispanic and Navajo weavers, artists and volunteers, are asking for your support to help supply much needed hay, feed and minerals to the herders that have old-type Navajo-Churro sheep.

We want to raise $20,000 by July 4, 2018 to buy another two semi-truckloads of hay plus milk replacer for the lambs from mothers too weak to nurse them.

Our efforts continue into 2019.

All funds go directly to the purchase of feedstuff for the sheep.

Shepherds interested in receiving help should contact the Regional Shepherd Coordinator, Irene Benalley (505)793-8038. You will need to provide numbers of Navajo-Churro owned as well as pictures.

For further program information, please contact NSP President Tara E Roche (435)225-5903
