Mentioned under soil a cattle ranch that is a conservation project,interesting.
On the U.S. side of the border there is the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge.
The pdf is a draft of the conservation plan. Good maps and loads of information about what sounds like a great area for eco tourisim.
Of course the more people visit the more roads and developement. It is like a catch 22 for sure.

Quote:
Mexican plants and wildlife reach their northernmost limits here, while migratory birds stop to rest and feed during the spring andfall. This combination makes Laguna Atascosa world famous for its mix of birds and other wildlife found nowhere else. Historically, the Refuge was primarily managed for migratory waterfowl, principally redhead ducks. Today, there is an expanded emphasis that now includes shorebird management and endangered species conservation. The Refuge is a premiere birdwatching destination with 415 recorded bird species, more than any other national wildlife refuge. A total of nine federally-listed endangered or threatened species occur within the Refuge, including four species of sea turtles. The largest United States population of endangered ocelot cats is located on the Refuge, making it the center for ocelot conservation and recovery.
