Herd Areas and Herd Management Areas

Link to BLM page on wild horse and burro herd areas

  • Herd Areas in the Western US – originally designated for wild horses and burros– some 54 million acres (and some records indicate there were over 80 million acres
  • Herd Management Areas in the Western US – those remaining with wild horses and burro, around 29 million acres remaining – a mere fragment of these herds are managed at genetically viable levels.

    Thank you, these are pages advocates should visit and know where these places are.. this is where the wild horses and burros still live, where we want to keep them.

    Has anyone the ability to print out these pages in color, up to 11 x 14? And maybe each state with their HMAs? I only need one good copy of each… These will be very useful. I have no money at this moment, but will be donating time and future expenses in March and throughout the year to the Wild Horse Count. mar

    Just a thought but how does one get the wild horses Federal Protection from being rounded up because their numbers are so scarce? You know we have like the Bald Eagle–at one time there numbers were down to like 19, and then because they were captured and AI introduced there numbers were brought back up to like 167 last time I checked.

    So how about seeking some kind of Extremely Endangered Species? We know that the Pryor Mtn mustangs are at numbers below viability. Each HMA would need their own Endangered Species Protection because of their own unique bloodlines.

    MUSTANGDREAMS–YOUR PICTURES ARE WONDERFUL! HOW GOOD IT IS TO SEE THOSE FACES FILLED WITH GOOD WILL AND KINDNESS (THOSE ARE EMOTIONS, AREN’T THEY?)– WHOOPS–THERE’S THAT WORD.
    WE ALL FEEL SO THANKFUL TO ALL OF YOU WHO WERE OUT THERE FOR OUR HORSES AND BURROS!

    FYI—The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources will hear the DOI budget on March 3, next Wednesday. Here is the contact link again, and I think IDA has a form at their site.

    Mar,
    Thanks, Yes it would be great to keep them all where they belong! We had so many here in Nevada. Its very painful, the Calico. Hoping to keep the Eagle stopped.

    What did you have in mind about printing pages? I want to share my photos for the advocacy of course, but please ask permissions for use of my photos.
    I wanted to share then here with everyone. It would be great to get all the rally shots into a full collage from all the protest rallies nationwide! Take that to Washington.
    thx, Cat
