Spanning 300,000 acres across northern Nevada, the historic Virginia Range is home to approximately 3,000 wild horses. These beautiful horses are native to Nevada and have become an integral part of our state’s identity. However, this population continues to grow without a large-scale, long-term plan to ensure the mustangs’ safety and well-being.
While support has been provided by volunteer organizations such as the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) and state institutions such as the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA), for which we are profoundly grateful, these initiatives are often reactive in that they occur after* incidents are reported on the range. Unfortunately, in between support efforts, the wild horses remain at risk of injury, death, and relocation as they continue to roam free across the Virginia Range.
Project Frontier aims to bridge this support gap. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Blockchains to manage and protect, year-round, the thousands of wild horses that roam throughout Blockchains’ land in the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center, known as Innovation Park. In supporting these mustangs, we are also promoting public safety and preserving the rangeland ecosystem.
