Abstract

This article examines both forest cover changes and attitudes toward environmental conservation in the El Cielo Biosphere Reserve in northeastern Mexico. Ethnographic interviews are employed to examine the attitudes of local people toward the costs and benefits of the biosphere reserve in their lives. This research founds that unlike many “paper parks,” large-scale deforestation has stopped and forest cover has expanded after the biosphere reserve was created. It concludes that local people value both tangible and intangible benefits created by the biosphere reserve
