The Corolla wild horses are one of the many natural treasures of our state, and people travel from across our state and the country to see these wild horses in their natural habitat. These horses are indigenous to North Carolina and do not exist anywhere else in the world. This bill directs the Secretary of the Interior to enter into an agreement with the Corolla Wild Horse Fund, Currituck County, and the State of North Carolina to provide for the management of these horses to ensure that they continue to thrive in their natural habitat. This bill is the companion legislation to H.R. 306, introduced by Congressman Walter Jones (NC-3), which passed the House of Representatives on February 6, 2012.
If you are a resident of North Carolina – please contact Senators Burr and Hagan to thank them and let them know that you support this bill. If you reside in another state, please contact your senators and ask them to be a cosponsor of this bill and let them know that you support its passage. The long-term survival of the wild horses depends upon this bill becoming a law. http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm/
