Support Humane Burro Management in Arizona Instead of Roundups
Action Alert from


American Wild Horse Preservation
August 2016


The Black Mountain burro herd is one of the largest and most genetically healthy wild burro populations left in the U.S. The BLM is doing the right thing by prioritizing humane management of these burros despite vocal lobbying from state and local officials for large-scale rounding up and removal of wild burros from the range.


The agency is now accepting public comments on an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the PZP fertility control pilot research program. Additional research is necessary because PZP has not been used as extensively on wild burros as it has been on wild horses, although one research project has already shown that it was 100 percent safe and effective in wild burros living in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

You can submit your own comments on the Environmental Assessment: ZonaStat-H PZP Fertility Management Pilot Project for Wild Female Burros Environmental Assessment

AND sign an online petition.


Protect the Black Mountain burros as they are one of the largest and most genetically healthy burro populations remaining in the U.S.

Thank BLM Arizona for prioritizing humane management of the wonderful and historic burros of the Black Mountain HMA.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
