Tell the US Forest Service to Protect Wild Burros Living in Central Nevada
Wild burros are protected under federal law just as wild horses are, but only 5,800 of these historic animals remain on public lands in the West. The national Forest Service (FS) is proposing to remove 80 percent of the wild burros living in one of the few remaining habitat areas -- the Hickison Wild Burro Territory (WBT) in central Nevada. Despite taking recent action to expand the Hickison burro habitat, the FS is proposing to remove 80 percent of the burros living in this area, and to establish an allowable management level of just 16- 45 burros for the WBT. Please take action below to oppose the FS plan to remove wild burros from the Hickison WBT.
Deer Run Herd Safe at a Sanctuary
The wild horse family, known as the Deer Run herd, lived peacefully outside Carson City for decades. In February, the BLM heartlessly captured and removed them over the vehement objections of the community. This week, five members of the Deer Run family made their journey to a new life, which AWHPC secured for them. Special thanks to the community, which rallied in support the plan to send the horses to a private 2,000 acre sanctuary in California where they can remain together and free for life. Two additional mares from the band gave birth in BLM holding pens and will join the family in April. Please click here for video and pictures of this moving story.
