Environmental Management Unit of the white-tailed deer

Capulálpam de Méndez

Three kilometers ( 2 miles ) away from Capulálpam, la Unidad de Manejo Ambiental (UMA) (Environmental Management Unit) is a territorial reserve for the conservation and reproduction of the white-tailed deer, a wild species with the greatest presence in Mexican territory.

As part of the ecotourism tours offered within the community, you can visit UMA to interact with the deer, pet them, and feed them. Due to its location within the pine and oak forests, other animals can be seen such as badgers, skunks, rattlesnakes, and, with a little luck, pumas.

There are interpretative trails with bromeliads and cacti, mainly nopaleras and biznagas. Within UMA you can learn more about the flora and fauna of the region at the Museo de la Biodiversidad (Biodiversity Museum).

For the visit, the place suggests wearing light or dark-colored clothes but not flashy, since it can alter the behavior of the animals.
