Dear friends from … Los Amigos !

We are pleased to announce that in November 2013, the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT ) granted registration and recognition of Rancho Los Amigos as a Management Unit for the Conservation of Wildlife (UMA) with registry key : SEMARNAT-UMA-EX-0248-VER/13. This award is given mainly to farms that are committed to the care and conservation of wildlife, through the authorization of a management program, grounded in reforestation, habitat improvement, conservation of flora and generation of native wildlife and environmental services.

The UMA Los Amigos poses the following:

Habitat Improvement Actions

To establish biological corridors to connect between fragments of native vegetation through reforestation with ” vegetation islands ” using trees and shrubs and native fruit, in order to improve habitat conditions for white-tailed deer, howler monkey, agouti, armadillo, green iguana, agouti and casquito turtle.

Research Actions – population studies

Estimate population attributes of white-tailed deer, howler monkeys, agouti, armadillo, iguana and casquito green turtle, which are the basis for development and comprehensive study of the ecosystem of the UMA Los Amigos.

Conservation Actions

Establish actions for absolute mangrove conservation and native forest and biodiversity that these ecosystems are home.

Conservation actions are focused on the following species:

  • - Veraecrucis Odocoileus virginianus (white-tailed deer)
  • - Allouatta palliatta (howler monkey)
  • - Dasypus novemcinctus (armadillo or toche)
  • - Iguana iguana (Iguana iguana or green)
  • - Cuniculus paca (paca gopher or pint)
  • - Kinosternon sp. (casquito pochitoque or turtle)
  • - Rhizophora mangle (red mangrove)

These species are at some level of risk of extinction in the NOM- ECOL- 059-2010 and is therefore justifiable to implement actions for development.

Objective : Ecotourism

Perform ecotourism activities, with minimal impact on the environment and biodiversity, maintaining resources today to meet the needs of future generations.

Historical Background:

Rancho Los Amigos Los Amigos UMA now and historically has been conducting conservation of natural resources and has made ​​great efforts to restore degraded by livestock areas and wind erosion, and integrate the community in conservation.

To date, they have introduced more than 50 thousand indigenous fruit and timber trees of the region and a few exotic , however, has taken great care in the latter, to prevent massive spread and competition with native trees.

This has led to the return of wildlife species, found in the UMA Los Amigos, a refuge where they have food, cover, escape routes from predators, breeding, nesting areas and areas suitable microclimates for development, all in harmony with tourists and residents Rancho Los Amigos.

Moreover, usually courses on environmental issues and environmental education workshops for community schools  in Barra de Sontecomapan and other regions of Mexico, with the intention of creating environmental awareness for the conservation of biodiversity and its environment are made, globally.

Despite these few but significant progress, much remains to be done. That is why we invite you to have an experience of ecotourism in the UMA Los Amigos, which was made considering a biodiversity – tourism interaction. Coming to Rancho Los Amigos is directly supporting the conservation of biodiversity and in particular of the six species of animals that are at risk of extinction (some greater or lesser degree) that inhabit the land. In this sense, his visit to Los Amigos supports the continuation of management actions on wildlife.

We are waiting for you to live a new experience in the new UMA Los Amigos.

Deseándoles siempre lo mejor, vamos por más árboles y menos violencia en este 2014

Estimados amigos, para  “Los Amigos “es un honor  saludarlos a través de este medio, deseándoles en estas  fechas decembrinas todo un racimo de buenos deseos y felicidad en compañía de todos los suyos.

 

La navidad es como la vemos y como la creamos con los deseos queridos y tradiciones de nuestra cultura, por eso  la Navidad es la ternura del pasado, el valor del presente y la esperanza del futuro es el deseo más sincero, de que en cada hogar se rebose con bendiciones buenas y eternas, buscando siempre un camino que nos lleve a la felicidad; por eso aunque se pierdan otras cosas al paso del tiempo, es necesario mantener la navidad como algo bello que nos remita a los años de infancia de fe y alegría.

 

Para los buenos recuerdos gratitud, para los malos mucha esperanza, para cada día una ilusión y siempre buscando la felicidad, son los deseos que les envíanos a ustedes y toda su familia.
