Our coverage encompasses the ecoregions of the Baja California Peninsula, Sonora, Sinaloa, Nayarit, the western portions of Chihuahua and Durango along the Sierra Madre Occidental, the coasts of Jalisco and Colima, the Gulf of California (or Sea of Cortez) and its islands, and the Exclusive Economic Zone of Mexico in the Pacific Ocean belonging to the afore-mentioned states.
