Brief Description of the Type of Zoo:

species of endangered animals, which contributes to the repopulation of ecological reserves.

It is a totally fenced area with an immense natural ecosystem. Among its features has a large space for walking, the animals are tidy and has a skating area. Inside it is an artificial lake, where you can paddle to enjoy some time of your stay in that place.

Soil Characteristics

Mostly sandy with some limestone rocks. They are very old soils highly rich in iron and silicon.

Thorny bushes abound, and a large number of cacti, which are very well adapted to the demanding conditions of the environment; being able to retain liquids for a long time in their tissues and use the water very efficiently.


The desert is a quiet place with a lot of influence from the wind and the water. These factors sweep the upper layers of the soil, severely eroding the landscape that is devoid of vegetation. Deserts can be produced by influences of marine currents in continental air masses. The sea currents will cool when crossing over this water carrying fog and humidity but without precipitation, preventing the rain from reaching the continental areas near the coast. D) Obtaining Resources:

We can get resources by implementing different programs:

The Institute of Environment and Sustainable Development of the State of Sonora has among its responsibilities the care and protection of native species and other parts of the world for the purposes of preservation and education. > This Program seeks to attract the attention of companies, international organizations, social organizations and the community in general, with the intention of participating in the adoption of a species, supporting financially or with donations in kind, feeding and improving their shelters
