Comments Due November 8, 2011
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is seeking public input for the revision of its Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) ("the Plan") that will set policy in the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge Complex for the next 15 years. The plan calls for total elimination of the wild horse and burro populations living in the refuge, which are estimated to be 800 horses and 90 burros.
