New Mexico's Natural Heritage: A Handbook of Law and Policy


Judy Flynn-O`Brien, Susan George, and David Orleans

Date Released: 

February 1999

This report is intended as a handbook for all those working to conserve and protect New Mexico`s wealth of biodiversity and rich natural heritage. The goal of the report is to describe the state`s current laws and policies, identify gaps and opportunities for change, and encourage a dialogue about what the laws that affect our natural heritage should look like. To accomplish this goal, the report highlights examples of New Mexico`s laws and programs that contain provisions for wildlife and habitat conservation.4 Where wildlife and habitat conservation provisions are absent from New Mexico`s laws, this report highlights opportunities for creating laws and programs that protect the state`s natural heritage.
