Geographically, the Sierra de los Tuxtlas is the volcanic massif centered on Catemaco, in the State of Veracruz, Mexico, bordering
on the Gulf of Mexico and encompassing the gulf coast and inland terrain of the volcanic massifs of
San Martin, Santa Marta and
San Martin Pajapan from the Gulf of Mexico and roughly 100 meters inland to app. 1750 meters above sea level, including parts
or all of the 9 counties (municipios) of
Angel R Cabada, Santiago Tuxtla, San Andres Tuxtla, Catemaco, San Pedro Soteapan,
Tatahuicapan de Juarez, Mecayapan, Pajapan and Hueyapan de Ocampo
.

The
Biosfera Los Tuxtlas occupies mostly the coastal and higher elevations of the Sierra de los Tuxtlas, including parts of all the
above counties except Hueyapan.

The three counties of Santiago Tuxtla, San Andres Tuxtla and Catemaco, which share common history, traditions and vicinity of the

San Martin Volcano
, usually refer to themselves as Los Tuxtlas and ignore the rest of the area.

"DEFENDERS OF THE ENVIRONMENT OF LOS TUXTLAS"
You have seen the devastation caused by indiscriminate mining and lumbering.
You have witnessed the deforestation.

You have looked upon the pollution of our rivers, lakes, and beaches.

You have heard the hue and cry, throughout the world, of global warming.

And you have listened as world leaders, scientists, and conservationists plead with us to do
more to protect our environment.

We must respond - now!. We cannot wait, doing nothing.

You can make a difference – as an individual, as a group, or as a business.
“During hundreds of thousands of years, man fought to establish a place for himself in nature. For the first time in the history of our
species, the situation has reversed, and today it is indispensable that we make a place for nature in the world of man.”
