Conservation priorities released for several protected areas along US-Mexico border
Date:4/23/2014

butaries and a landscape-wide monitoring program throughout the region.

Recommendations of the Assessment:

  • Protect environmental quality and promote sustainable economic development of border communities, including the development of binational ecotourism routes on both sides of the US-Mexico border;
  • Develop conservation strategies that will preserve an ecosystem that is resilient to climatic changes;
  • Build capacity within academia, state and federal agencies, as well as within civil society to conduct the recommended inventories, monitoring, and research in each of the 29 priority conservation areas identified;
  • Create an institutional framework to facilitate binational conservation and restoration projects in the region; and
  • Support and justify funding at the international, national, and local levels in both Mexico and the United States.

The Assessment's ultimate goals are to:

  • Establish a common frame for discussing transboundary protection of natural resources in the region;
  • Assist all who live and work in the region in identifying opportunities for improving conservation practices;
  • Create or maintain ongoing collaborative conservation projects across the Big Bend-Ro Bravo landscape;
  • Serve as a model for transboundary conservation efforts that can inform similar initiatives across North America, including in Canada.

Quick fact:

When Big Bend National Park was established on 12 June 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt of the United States of America wrote to President Manuel vila Camacho of Mexico, "I do not believe that this undertaking in the Big Bend will be complete until the entire park area in this region on both sides of the Rio Grande forms one great international park." Seventy years later, the pace of the current binational efforts picked up in 2010, with a statement from the US and Mexican governments to "work through appropriate nationa
