“Discover Quintana Roo’s New Wildlife Conservation Fund!”

This week, Quintana Roo announced the establishment of a trust fund dedicated to supporting programs and projects for biodiversity conservation. The fund, which is now in effect, will be managed by the State Finance and Planning Secretariat (Sefiplan).

The trust will serve as a state public administration coordination mechanism, investing in biodiversity conservation. This includes enhancing the connectivity of biological corridors and developing programs in line with the laws of Ecological Balance and Environmental Protection and Wildlife of Quintana Roo. All initiatives will require the approval of the Technical Committee.

The announcement highlighted the importance of conserving, restoring, and sustainably using natural resources within the state's jurisdiction. This includes protecting flora and fauna in natural protected areas and promoting environmental education and research.

The trust will also encourage practices for biodiversity protection and implement safe structures for wildlife. This is aimed at reducing the risk of wildlife deaths from traffic incidents.
