Countries to Work Together on Border Conservation

BIG BEND  - The United States and Mexico are going to be working together more to protect the environment along the border.       

The two countries want to strengthen conservation in Big Bend National Park and the El Carmen area of Mexico.            

Officials will create a master plan and present it to President Obama early next year.

Both regions make up 14 percent of the U.S. - Mexico border and cover three million square miles.
