Tell BLM: No Gas or Oil Leases in Wild Horse Habitat


The following article is from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Nevada wants to lease 124 parcels of land in the Battle Mountain District for oil and gas development. Of these, 44 parcels overlap five wild horse Herd Management Areas. The agency admits that such development can result in disruption and displacement of federally-protected wild horses.

BLM routinely excludes key habitat for sensitive species and archeologically important sites from oil and gas development. Please take a moment to tell the BLM to exclude from the leasing plan the 44 land parcels that overlap the protected wild horse habitat.
