Tell BLM: Exempt Wild Horse Habitat from Oil & Gas Lease Auction


The following article is from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) routinely exempts land from leasing for oil and gas development for a multitude of reasons, including protecting sensitive plant and animal species as well as objections from ranchers. Please help wild horses get equal protection — submit comments today on the BLM Ely, Nevada District’s draft Environmental Assessment for 24 land parcels that have been nominated for auction for oil and gas development leases. Twelve of the parcels reside within the Antelope Valley Herd Management Area (HMA), which is currently home to over 700 wild horses. Please take action today to request the BLM to exclude the parcels within wild horse habitat areas from auction for oil and gas development leases.
