Our cowboys (and cowgirls) are as important as the beautiful lands that they steward in Mexico. Sustainable hunting and low-impact grazing are important economic incentives that help ranchers protect thousands of acres of habitat for game animals, acres which are often full of unique local plants, many of which are useful and/or medicinal, too.
