Scott Beckstead has joined The Wild Beauty Foundation as Program Director, overseeing WBF’s Wild Horse Week Educational Program.
Beckstead has always been passionate about animal welfare, leading animal protection to play a significant role in his professional career. He gained experience in Animal Law while owning his own law firm from 1994-2008 and now teaches the subject at the University of Oregon College of Law and Willamette University College of Law.
Beckstead has assumed positions with the Humane Society, and more recently Animal Wellness Action and Center for A Humane Economy, where he serves as their director of campaigns.
“A top priority for me is and always will be saving horses both wild and domestic from cruelty, abuse, and slaughter,” Beckstead affirms.
Beckstead looks forward to contributing his expertise to WBF’s Wild Horse Week as it debuts next year.
