Years of Implementation

Procer is a subsidy program administered by Conanp, intended to contribute to the conservation of at-risk species and their habitat by promoting the collaboration and participation of higher education and research institutions, civil society organizations, communal farms and communities. Its projects include the biological monitoring of species, ecosystem restoration, research studies and the strengthening of special management instruments.

The first Monarch Butterfly Migratory Path Conservation Project was implemented in 2014, involving 51 protected natural areas—25 federal and 26 state—to apply monitoring protocols on the migratory path and hold the first meeting of the National Monarch Butterfly Monitoring Network (Red Nacional de Monitoreo de Mariposa Monarca), with the participation of managerial and technical personnel from the protected natural area, nongovernmental organizations such as Correo Real-Profauna and World Wildlife Foundation), and academic institutions such sa the UNAM Institute of Biology, Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro and Instituto Thomas Jefferson.
