In 1971, with the passage of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act, the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was given responsibility for managing these much loved symbols of the Western spirit. After nearly 40 years under the BLM’s protection, wild horses and burros, once "fast disappearing from the American scene," are protected, their place on the public lands secure. The BLM estimates over 38,000 wild horses and burros now roam on 26.6 million acres of the BLM-managed land in 180 Herd Management Areas across 10 western states.

Americans are passionate about wild horses and burros, and there are many different, often conflicting, perspectives about how they should be managed. The BLM is committed to bridging these differences by working closely with our partners, stakeholders, the public and our employees to develop a strategy and find solutions that are best for wild horses and burros, wildlife, and the many other uses of the public lands. Over the next 60 days, we invite our interested stakeholders to offer their opinions and suggestions about the draft goals and objectives, as well as the series of possible management actions in this document. The BLM will consider your input to develop a strategy which will be presented in the 2010 Report to Congress later this fall.

We value your input and look forward to any suggestions you may have to assist the BLM to improve the Wild Horse and Burro Program. Thank you for your interest and participation in this important effort.
