En todo el país de Mexico hay 53,000 ejidos y aprox 3,000,000 (2.6 % del total de la población a nivel nacional) ejidatarios que ocupan 82,420,000 hectáreas que representan el 42 % del total de la superficie del país.

In Mexico there are about 53,000 ejidos with approximately 3,000,000 (2.6% of the total population) ejiditarios that occupy about 82,420,000 hectares, representing 42% of the total area of the country. Many ejidos are now in ex-urban areas and some are leased, therefore there are likely to be more people actually living on ejido lands. What is important from a conservation perspective, is that there is a significant portion of rural Mexico that is held and managed in this social cooperative.
