Big Bend/Rio Bravo, USA-Mexico conservation success

Good things often take awhile, and are worth waiting for…

In late 2008 we were planning practical outcomes for WILD9 (the 9th World Wilderness Congress), with The WILD Foundation and our partners trying to create better wilderness awareness in Mexico and better cooperation for wilderness in North America. Patricio Robles Gil — the great Mexican conservation photographer and artist, and our partner in creating WILD9 – suggested to me that we visit with our colleague Juan Elvira Quesada, Mexico’s Secretary of Environment, and present to him the long-dormant plan for a transboundary park along the USA/Mexico border in the region of Big Bend (Texas) and Maderas del Carmen (Mexico).
