Mexico has many environmental problems that adversely affect the diversity and number of birds. Urbanization, large-scale deforestation, air and water pollution this is an incomplete list of factors unfavorable for nature. It is remarkable that reserves have been created in Mexico and quite successfully protect birds from extinction. Some of them are even under the protection of UNESCO, for example, the Sian Kaan nature reserve on the Yucatan Peninsula. Hunting and fishing activities in such places is prohibited by law.
