On its more than 50,000 hectares, CLO has restored riparian areas by implementing rock structures such as gabions and trenches, which help retain rainwater, prevent soil erosion, and promote increased plant cover on the soil. Through controlled burning and rotational grazing, CLO has worked to eliminate and control exotic species, aerate soils, and manage pastures.
CLO collaborates with different national and international organizations and universities to conserve native and ecologically important species based on scientific research; Some of the species benefiting from these efforts are the black bear (Ursus americanus), jaguar (Panthera eleven), puma (Puma concolor), ocelot (Leopardus pardales), American beaver (Castor canadienses), Tura deer (Odocoileus hemionus), Yaqui catfish (Ictalurus precie), golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), among other species of resident and migratory birds.
During 2022, CLO staff participated in different forums, such as the Ranching for Profit course, the Annual Regenerative Ranch Management Meeting, the 1st Sustainable Grazing Network Livestock Meeting, and the 4th Grazing Management Forum. CLO shared and acquired new tools for sustainable ranch management in all these events.
On the other hand, the Rancho Nuevo property hosted the specialized course Prescribed Burning Academy 2022, in charge of Conafor, in which firefighters and technicians learned fire management techniques, the use of forestry tools, compass, GPS, and pumping equipment. The event provided CLO, Conanp, and municipal and state Civil Protection personnel training.
CLO has strengthened ties with organizations such as the Universities of Arizona, Northern Arizona and Sonora, Borderlands Restoration Network, Sky Island Alliance, Profauna, Naturalia, Wildlands Network, Boomitra, Innovaciones Alumbra, and Rancho Cacachilas
