Print Friendly Version
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed on July 31, 2005 creating a sister park relationship between Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge and Chipinque Ecological Park, Monterey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Similar to Santa Ana in size, Chipinque is a 4,015-acre natural area rich in biodiversity. It's programs in wildlife research, fire management, habitat restoration and law enforcement correlate with programs at Santa Ana and there are strong cultural and language similarities between the two areas. As part of an on-going effort to work with Mexico on cross border conservation, this MOU formalizes an agreement to exchange technical information, provide on-the-job and classroom training, and to promote public awareness of international conservation partnerships, areas and programs in Mexico and the U.S.
