Wild Spanish Mustangs Fund. Establishes a fund to protect the last known herd of Spanish mustangs, which roams on the barrier islands of Virginia and North Carolina. The fund will be administered by the Department of Conservation and Recreation, with input from the manager of False Cape State Park and community leaders from the Virginia Beach area, and will pay for such needs as erecting fences to prevent the horses from entering populated areas in Virginia and possibly being killed on Virginia roads and transporting the horses safely back to the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge.
