Biological diversity is a global asset of incalculable value to present and future generations.
The three nations of North America, partners in the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC), are fully cognizant of the urgent need to conserve this vital asset and share an avowed commitment to maintain habitat by improving the management of natural resources for the preservation of endangered species.
Accomplishing this task of conservation and management in the face of unsustainable human development patterns promises to be one of the most pressing issues of the coming decades.
Ribbon of Life marks the third report that the Secretariat of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) has developed for the CEC Council under the authority of Article 13 of the NAAEC.
This report puts forth a number of pragmatic actions aimed at balancing human activities with the preservation of important wildlife habitat along the upper San Pedro River.
