BLM extends deadline for wild horse ecosanctuary proposals

........................................................................................................................................................................................

The Bureau of Land Management is extending its deadline for private land wild horse ecosanctuary proposals to Sept. 19.

The ecosanctuaries, to be publicly accessible with a potential for ecotourism, would help the BLM feed and care for excess wild horses that have been removed from Western public rangelands. Each proposed ecosanctuary must be able to support at least 100 wild horses.

The official notice of solicitation can be found at www.grants.gov under opportunity number L12AS00140. For more information, please contact Susan Kaller, grants management officer, at (775) 861-6559 or Zachary Reichold, senior wild horse and burro specialist, at (202) 912-7261.
