The Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve

This year, the Big Canopy Campout will be raising funds to support this incredible forest reserve in Mexico. Made up of multiple different types of forest, including cloud forest, it is the most diverse habitat in the country. It’s home to jaguars, pumas, margay, bears, otters, macaws and parrots, to name just a few.


The vast majority of the Sierra Gorda has no protection and there are many pressures on the area. By collaborating with the World Land Trust, who work closely with local conservation organisation Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda, we aim to help protect more acres of this amazing habitat and the wildlife within it.
