Colorado Mustangs Are Under Attack

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comments on its plan to roundup and remove 167 wild horses from the West Douglas Herd Area (HA) near Grand Junction, CO. If unable to capture all 167 horses from the West Douglas HA, the BLM will also round up horses in the neighboring Piceance/East Douglas Herd Management Area (HMA) in order to meet its removal quota. The BLM has been trying to "zero out" (eliminate all wild horses from) the West Douglas HA for years. Despite receiving over 8,000 public scoping comments demanding alternatives to this proposed roundup, the BLM has failed to seriously consider options for reducing livestock grazing and humanely managing wild horses with PZP birth control in this area. Your comments are needed today!


Tell BLM: Protect Wild Horses from Drilling Project

The BLM Battle Mountain District in Nevada is asking for public comments on the proposed expansion of drilling exploration activities by the Cordex Exploration Company, which conducts mineral mining on BLM lands just west of Tonopah, NV. This project would expand road construction, use of heavy equipment (drilling rigs, trucks, excavators, etc.) and industrial drilling activities in an area that lies within the Pilot Mountain HMA where an estimated 583 horses reside. The BLM acknowledges that these expanded activities could negatively impact the wild free-roaming behaviors of the wild horses living in the HMA, even potentially causing the abandonment of foals during foaling season.

Please take action below to ask the BLM to reject this expansion of drilling activity, or, at minimum, require strong protections for the wild horses living in this federally-designated wild horse management area. 


BLM Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board Meeting

AWHPC Director, Suzanne Roy delivering your 14,000 comments to the Advisory Board.

The BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board held its first meeting of 2015 on April 22-23 in Columbus, Ohio. At the meeting, the BLM revealed dangerous plans to pursue research, both off- and on-the-range, to develop surgical sterilization methods for wild stallions and mares, while continuing to vastly under-utilize the currently available and humane PZP birth control vaccine. Approximately 25 organizations and citizens -- including some who traveled hundreds of miles to address the board -- spoke up at the meeting for increased protection of wild horses and burros.
