The article profiles Mexican conservation rancher Carlos Robles Elías who struggles to move from cattle to conservation. It indicates that his ranch has become a symbol hope in the midst of the region's troubles, the illegal traffic in undocumented immigrants and the drug cartel violence that has killed ranchers. In addition, his income from birdwatchers and hunters has declined because of the drug-cartel violence that discouraged customers.
