REVIEWS OF THE RANGER
Active Conservation Tours (ACT Rides)
Being a range rider for a day was such a great experience! Daniel’s passion for the subject is evident and spending the day with him was such a treat.
I learned so much and got to bond with a very special horse while riding across beautiful terrain. Despite not having ridden a horse in a couple decades, Daniel helped me feel comfortable with Raven right away. I highly recommend this trip!
-Mia, ACT Rider
Daniel + GRIPH in the Field
Daniel Curry has been working for me for 10 years. He genuinely loves what he does and he is good at it. He is my Range Rider of choice because when he is on my range, the cattle rest easy and the wolves learn to hunt their natural prey and leave my cattle alone. His methods are effective and my losses to depredation by wolf are down when he is watching my range.
-Steve, Washington Rancher
Range Rider, the Film
In Curry’s work, he uses non-lethal mitigation methods – audible deterrents, lights, and pursuit of the animal – all in an effort to shift the view from “the only good wolf is a dead wolf”, to one of peaceful cohabitation. The measure of success is when the cows go home healthy, and the wolves continue to live and thrive on their landscape. By working on the landscape to prevent conflict amongst humans, animals, and the natural environment, he has proven to skeptics that co-thriving is possible.
