CONSERVATION

As well as ensuring the sustainability of the Bufo Alvarius toad in the wild, research is underway with numerous groups to study the viability of small scale reserves/sanctuaries for study and captive breeding programs to help contribute to re-population of the desert.

Even though ranch/sanctuaries can be a point of debate, sanctuaries can be small nodes, microclimates for study and re-distribution. These studies also include a focus on the legal protection/status, sanctions and awareness in Mexico for this particular species to protect their population more broadly.

A reserve in the U.S. in Arizona &/or New Mexico protected under the Native American Church as a sacrament and established in partnership with Wildlife conservation agencies and perhaps state government is a possibility to explore.

Funding is now sought to develop these initiatives.
