Brian Gewecke, Senior Environmental Specialist with the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community’s Community Development Department (CDD) Environmental Protection and Natural Resources (EPNR) Division, is hard at work taking care of everything on the Community that creeps, walks and flies, and this includes animals and plants. The Community takes great pride in the animals living on the Community, including the wild horses. One of the goals of the Range Management efforts in CDD/EPNR is to ensure enough food sources are available to the wild horses which have caused the Community to seek options related to adoption of the horse and contraception for the mares to ensure that the range is sustainable.  Over the last five years, the population of the wild-horse herd has been reduced by more than half to a more manageable size, from 400 to 180.
