Wild mustangs rest among the Book Cliffs on the western slope of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Direct descendants of those reintroduced to North America by Spanish explorers and conquistadors, these horses live on one of only three ranges in the western U.S. preserved for wild horses to roam. The Little Book Cliffs Wild Horse Area is currently under Wilderness Study Area designation, which temporarily provides limited protections. However, political and commercial pressure has been mounting to strip those protections and open the area to development and motorized vehicle access. The newly launched Colorado Wildlands Project is working to preserve the region’s cultural heritage and biodiversity by establishing durable administrative and legislative solutions for this and other critical Bureau of Land Management administered lands across the Colorado Plateau.
