The Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Carson City District is seeking comments on the preparation of a new Resource Management Plan (RMP), which addresses the management of wild horses and burros in 21 Herd Areas (HAs), including six zeroed out HAs in central/western Nevada, north of Reno.
This area accounts for roughly 1.8 million acres of Nevada’s wild horse herd management areas (including one burro herd management area). Included are the Dogskin Mountains & Granite Peak, Flanigan, Pine Nut Mountains, Clan Alpines, Desatoya, Garfield Flat, Lahontan, Pilot-Table Mountain, South Stillwater, and Wassuk Herd Management Areas and the Marietta Wild Burro Range.
This is the stage of the planning process when the BLM sets management strategies, allocates resources, and sets “appropriate” management levels for wild horses and burros. Now is the time to raise our collective voices to demand change for the wild horses and burros in the heart of mustang country!
