American Black Bear

The American black bear mainly inhabits the mountainous areas of northern Mexico. The most important populations in Coahuila are near Serranías del Burro, Zapalinamé and Maderas del Carmen.
This species is in danger of extinction, threatened by the loss of its habitat that is affected by the expansion of agriculture, livestock, forest fires and indiscriminate hunting.
The expansion of human to the natural habitat of the black bear has also resulted in conflicts such as predation of cattle, damage to orchards and corn crops. Therefore, it is persecuted by the settlers who in some cases come to kill them.

Mexican Prairie Dog

Guardians of the land

It is an exclusive rodent from central and northern Mexico. It inhabits semi-arid zones with meadows and grasslands.
The underground habits of the prairie dogs make it a key element for the operation of the grasslands. By digging their burrows, interconnected between tunnels, it transports quantities of soil outside, which helps to improve oxygenation and infiltration of water into the ground.
For a long time, the species was considered a pest for farmers and ranchers. Currently, it is in danger of extinction, threatened mainly by agricultural practices. But since 2016, damaging a prairie dog is considered an offense punishable by the Federal Penal Code.

You can be the change for the prairie dog!
