A Voice for the Voiceless
Beyond the natural beauty of the Havasupai region of the Grand Canyon, there is an ugly truth. For more than four decades, countless pack horses and mules in the canyon have been neglected and abused by certain violent individuals. From the scale of abuse that has been documented, it is clear that this is a chronic and systemic problem within the Supai nation. Whether due to lack of resources or willful disregard, SAVE pledges to do all we can to address this problem. We pledge to be a voice for the animals.
