New Mexico

Environmental Law

The State Wildlife Laws Handbook (1993) was produced by the Center for Wildlife Law and is a quick summary of Wildlife Laws in New Mexico through 1992.

Saving Biodiversity: A status report on state laws, policies and programs (1996) was produced by the Center for Wildlife Law and The Defenders of Wildlife. This is a summary of NM laws, policies and programs that impact biodiversity protection.

New Mexico's Natural Heritage: A Handbook of Law and Policy (February 1999). This report was produced by the Center for Wildlife Law, Defenders of Wildlife and the Environmental Law Institute. It is intended as a handbook for all those working to conserve and protect New Mexico's wealth of biodiversity and rich natural heritage. The goal of the report is to describe the state's current laws and policies, identify gaps and opportunities for change, and encourage a dialogue about what the laws that affect our natural heritage should look like. To accomplish this goal, the report highlights examples of New Mexico's laws and programs that contain provisions for wildlife and habitat conservation.(4) Where wildlife and habitat conservation provisions are absent from New Mexico's laws, this report highlights opportunities for creating laws and programs that protect the state's natural heritage.
