Since 2012, FANP has promoted the Protected Areas Learning Community (CAAP).

In its almost 25 years of operation, FANP has financed more than 500 initiatives for species conservation, ecosystem restoration, fire management, promotion and support of sustainable productive projects, ecotourism, and park ranger training, among others.
Through this mechanism, we have been able to care for more than 80 endangered species of high biodiversity value, such as the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos canadensis) and the gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus). More than 30,000 people have beneﬁted by improving their livelihoods in relation to nature. According to the Global Environment Facility's 2015 impact assessment, FANP funding prevented 23% of forest loss in ten years. Click here to view the report from the GEF website.
During the first half of 2022, FANP channeled resources to 53 federal PAs to carry out strategic conservation activities, such as biological monitoring, supervision and surveillance, fire management, and environmental education. The FMCN team accompanied the update of the strategic planning for the Sierra del Abra Tanchipa Biosphere Reserve, Ocampo Flora and Fauna Protection Area, and Área de Protección de Recursos Naturales Cuenca Alimentadora del Distrito Nacional de Riego 004 Don Martín; all of them in northeastern Mexico.
