ReU represents one of the continent's most important sites for migratory birds and iconic species, such as the American bison, black-tailed prairie dog and golden eagle.
FMCN, through CLO has advanced in the systematization of biological monitoring to better understand the conservation status of ReU and to take advantage of the interest of various research projects that contribute to the effective management of the ranch. We have achieved the linkage with specialists in low-stress bison handling and, with this, favor the regeneration of the pasture with more natural processes.
Currently, CLO continues to work on the Monitoring Plan for ReU and collaborates with various organizations to include grassland bird monitoring as part of their activities. ReU employees also work on holistic livestock and bison herd management, rotating grazing to ensure better management and maintenance of the grassland. In addition, as the organization managing ReU, CLO is working on the design of a training plan for ranchers with a regenerative approach, including lessons learned from the Ranching For Profit initiative and the cowboy school at the Autonomous University of Chihuahua (Universidad Autónoma de Chihuahua).
