Jaguar National Park in Tulum

As part of the actions taken by the state of Quintana Roo to protect and conserve its beautiful ecosystems, the Jaguar National Park project was born in Tulum, and will begin its construction in August. The perimeter fence that will delimit this natural reserve will be built on an area of more than 2,000 hectares in the jungle zone of Tulum.

The President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and the Governor of Quintana Roo, Carlos Joaquín González, commented that the main objective of this important environmental conservation project is to stop the excessive urban growth in the city of Tulum and surrounding areas.

This new park will carry out different actions such as the restoration of degraded areas, the development of productive activities such as beekeeping, and strategies for the conservation of flora, fauna, and endemic animal species such as the jaguar. It will also have wildlife crossings that will allow species to circulate freely. Its operation will be based on environmental guidelines, its structure will be bioclimatic, and there will be a rational use of water and energy resources.

The construction of this reserve will contribute to the protection of approximately 960 species of local flora and fauna. Among the animal species are the large fin topote fish, catalogued as an endangered species; the Mexican parakeet snake, Central American spider monkey, jaguar, and at least 13 endangered bird species as well.
