About this book

Mexican conservationists have sometimes observed that it is difficult to find a country less interested in the conservation of its natural resources than in Mexico. Yet, despite a long history dedicated to the pursuit of development regardless of its environmental consequences, Mexico has an equally long, though much less appreciated, tradition of environmental conservation.
