Reserva Ajos-Bavispe re-categorizada

El año pasado, les hicimos saber que el estado de protección de la reserva Ajos-Bavispe se encontraba en un limbo burocrático desde hace muchos años. El lunes 22 de mayo la Secretaría del Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (SEMARNAT) finalmente la re-categorizó, protegiendo así a la extraordinaria biodiversidad de está región de importancia central para la protección de jaguares, osos negros, lobos mexicanos, cotorras serranas occidentales y muchas otras especies prioritarias para la conservación.

Ajos-Bavispe Reserve Recategorized to Protected Area – Success!

Last year, we let you know the protected status of the Ajos-Bavispe reserve in the borderlands of Sonora had been in bureaucratic limbo for several years. On Monday, May 22, the Mexican government finally recategorized it, protecting the unique biodiversity of this core area for the protection of jaguars, black bears, Mexican wolves, thick-billed parrots and many other species listed in one or both countries along the border.
