The Bureau of Land Management announced today that it is extending from May 14 to June 7 the deadline for submitting proposals for public-private partnerships to establish wild horse вЂњecosanctuariesвЂќ on private or other non-BLM managed land.
The deadline for a second set of proposals вЂ“ relating to ecosanctuaries that would be on a mix of private and BLM-managed land вЂ“ has been extended from May 24 to June 21.
The ecosanctuaries, to be publicly accessible with a potential for ecotourism, would help the BLM feed and care for excess wild horses that have been removed from Western public rangelands.
The notice of the first solicitation for proposals can be found at www.grants.gov under opportunity number L11AS00033. The notice for the second solicitation can be found at the same Website under opportunity number L11AS00043.
