Tell BLM: Protect Largest U.S. Burro Herd & More


The following is a post from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

May is Burro Awareness Month and with wild burros at critically low numbers in the U.S., we are calling for the creation of a National Wild Burro Range in Arizona, the state where over half of America’s remaining wild burros reside. The Obama Administration has the authority to designate the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Black Mountain Herd Management Area (HMA) as a wild burro range, an act that would confer greater protections to the iconic wild burros living there that are cherished by so many. The burro population in the Black Mountain HMA is perhaps the largest, most genetically healthy and robust burro population left in the U.S. Please sign the petition asking President Obama to honor the animal who is the symbol of his party by taking this action before the end of his term!
