Conabio wishes to thank all persons and institutions who have contributed or co-operated in to our Hot-Spot-Detection program.

The program started with a funding by USAID (The United States Agency for International Development), distributed by the Fondo Mexicano para la Conservación de la Naturaleza, A.C., which helped us to establish our program, as well as NOAA-NGDC (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration - National Geophysical Data Center) which helped by supplying DMSP-OLS data for the first Hot-Spot detection program of 1998 in Conabio.
This program would not have been possible without the continuous and most valuable contributions of several institutions among which are:

The United States Agengy for International Development
El Fondo Mexicano para la Conservación de la Naturaleza, A.C.
National Oceanic & tmospheric Administration - The National Geophysical Data Center
