BLM Burro Resource Management - Off Range Grant Program – Due 01/15/24

Opportunity Title:

Burro Resource Management - Off Range

Funder/Agency:

Bureau of Land Management

Opportunity Number:

L24AS00087

Description:

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages and protects wild horses and burros on 26.9 million acres of public lands across ten western states as part of its mission to administer public lands for multiple uses. The BLM created the Wild Horse and Burro Program to implement the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 and its goal is to manage healthy wild horses and burros on healthy public rangelands. Broadly, the law declares wild horses and burros to be “living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West” and stipulates that the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service have the responsibility to manage and protect herds in their respective jurisdictions within areas where wild horses and burros were found roaming in 1971.


The Wild Horse and Burro Program consists of two main branches: on-range management of wild horses and burros, and off-range management and care of wild horses and burros. The on- range program manages for viable physically and behaviorally healthy wild horse and burro populations and maintains a thriving natural ecological balance with other resources and land uses. The off-range management goal is to ensure the health and welfare of wild horses and burros that were removed from public lands while under BLM care; to place animals into private care through adoptions, sales, and transfers; to ensure the welfare of adopted animals; and to build partnerships and relationships with external organizations. Communication, outreach, and education are priorities of both branches.
