BLM California Gathers and Removals

BLM California manages 21 wild horse and burro herd management areas on approximately 2.5 million acres. The combined appropriate management level for all HMAs in the state is 2,200 animals.

Since 1971, the BLM has removed nearly 27,000 animals from public rangelands in California as part of its efforts to maintain healthy horses and burros on healthy public rangelands. Animals removed from public rangelands are offered to the public for adoption; unadopted animals are cared for on open pastures for the rest of their lives. Below, find on-going and recently completed gathers, organized by HMA.
