SOCIAL PARTICIPATION IN SIERRA FRÍA: NATURAL RESOURCE PROTECTION AREA (APRN), ZACATECAS, MÉXICO

Abstrac


The management of Natural Protected Areas (Áreas Naturales Protegidas, ANP) in México has been controversial in terms of social inclusion; a tool on which the use, management and conservation of these areas are based is the Conservation and Management Plan (Plan de Conservación y Manejo, PCyM). In this study, we approached 35 inhabitants in plots near or inside the Natural Resource Protection Area (Área de Protección de Recursos Naturales, APRN) of Sierra Fría in Zacatecas at the beginning of 2013; structured and directed surveys were used, to study various aspects such as environmental vigilance, exploitation, environmental education, tourism and management. It was found that residents are open to learning about these issues, although there is also lack of information and the need for coordination in the different structures, both social and governmental. If this situation is not addressed, a threat can be foreseen for the conservation, use and management of the APRN, as well as permanent damages. Precise contributions are presented to be considered in the PCyM.

Palabras clave: conservation, management, social participation, population, Sierra Fría.
