National Wild Horse Association

 

The National Wild Horse Association (NWHA) is a registered non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization run completely by volunteers. The National wild Horse Association (NWHA) was established in 1971 when Congress passed the

"Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act". The mission of National Wild

Horse Association is to ensure the welfare of wild horses and burros and

their survival, in an ecologically balanced environment on the open range.

 

Organization Profile: The NWHA has over 30 years experience with wild horses and burros and the issues surrounding them. Members have worked in five states and over 80 Herd Management Areas (HMA's). We have strived

to maintain good working relationships with various governmental agencies through co-operative agreements with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Our continuing goal is to see that public lands achieve a thriving ecological balance, assuring the quality of life and continuance of wild

horses and burros on the open range. Through continuing range monitoring and evaluation, we have helped to determine Appropriate Management

Levels (AML's) throughout the area with the BLM in Southern Nevada.

Over the past 10 years, the NWHA has raised more than 500 orphan foals with a less than 1% mortality rate. The NWHA has  been involved in more than 30 satellite adoptions and continually strives to educate the public on the adoption program and wild horse issues.

NWHA members provide thousands of volunteer hours annually to support

and secure the future of wild horses and burros, and was awarded BLM's highest honor, the National Volunteer Award for 2003, "Making a Difference on the Public Lands" in recognition of our many years of service.
