20 years advocating for Nature

DAN is a Non-Profit Organization. Since its inception in 2004, DAN´s main purpose has been to protect the environment, wildlife, and the human right to a healthy environment.


During our 20 years of operation, we have identified the increasing need for legal support for environmental protection and for strengthening conservation initiatives in Northwest Mexico. Working with a committed group of public interest environmental lawyers and men and women with a multidisciplinary background committed to defending nature, DAN has succeeded in protecting ecosystems, landscapes, local communities, environmental human rights and wildlife in Northwest Mexico.
