The BLM has announced a Second Solicitation for Proposals to Establish Wild Horse eco-sanctuaries on combined public and private lands located within Herd Areas in the West. This new funding opportunity is part of the BLM's reforms to the Wild Horse and Burro Program.

The eco-sanctuaries will help the BLM feed and care for excess wild horses that have been removed from Western public rangelands. The facilities would be publicly accessible with a potential for eco-tourism.

The official funding opportunity is available on-line, and the deadline to apply is May 24, 2011, at 4:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. This solicitation is separate from a previous announcement that covered private-public partnerships for eco-sanctuaries on private land.
