In more depth...
Project Partners and PersonnelOur partner is Nature and Culture International (NCI), which is partnering with the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy on this effort. This project was made possible by a grant from The Sitka Foundation.
Further informationThe project area is in the Chuchujaqui watershed which includes tropical deciduous forest and oak-pine woodland. The ecosystems in the reserve are presently in excellent ecological condition, as is the Chuchujaqui river.
The larger effort, of which this is a part, includes land purchase as well as supporting CONANP, the Mexican National Park Service, to help develop sustainable management of the reserve. Related activities by NCI incluce developing and implementing educational programs on the importance of the reserve and its continued expansion, as well as the need to assure its fully sustainable use.
