From the Deseret News:

SALT LAKE CITY — The Bureau of Land Management is looking for partners willing to help the agency care for excess wild horses and burros by establishing ecosanctuaries.

The new program sprung from an initiative announced in 2009 by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who said the federal agency’s wild horse and burro program needed to be revamped to cut costs and improve efficiencies in the management of the nation’s 35,500 wild horses and burros.

A two-pronged approach under this program allows the establishment of ecosanctuaries solely on non-BLM managed private land or on land that is a combination of public and private land.

Agency officials say they anticipate ecosanctuaries hosted on private land will go through a proposal evaluation much more expediently and that such a facility could be ready, under signed agreements, by as early as late fall 2011.
