At AWHC, we’re not just advocating for change, we’re implementing it. Our in-the-wild management program for Nevada’s historic Virginia Range wild horses is establishing the on-the-ground model for humane management or large wild horse populations on large tracts of land.
The cornerstone of our program is remote darting of wild mares with a scientifically proven vaccine known as "PZP" to slow population growth rates and reduce population numbers over time. This approach provides a humane and cost effective alternative to rounding up and removing wild horses from their homes on the range.
We’re also helping community groups adopt and implement this model of humane management for other populations of wild horses in the West.
