Comisión Nacional de Áreas Naturales Protegidas

Comisión Nacional de Áreas Naturales Protegidas - the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas better known by the initials Conanp, is an institution of the Mexican government, whose primary function is to ensure the care and conservation of the natural heritage of Mexico and the 182 Natural Protected Areas (ANP) that exist in the country.

This organization was founded on June 5, 2000, and since then it has played an essential role in the conservation of the considerable number of natural areas that Mexico has.

This institution also supports the management of Mexico's natural resources. This is achieved through the National Environment and Natural Elements Program 2001-2002.
