Forest Fighters

Forest fighters 2021

The forest fighters are the members of the brigades, firefighters and park rangers that participate in the fight of wildfires in Baja California.

Wildfire Risk in Baja California

During 2020, 141 wildfires were registered in Baja California, affecting more than 79,000 hectares and 7,717 days per person were dedicated to fighting the wildfires in the state.

85% of the fires registered in Mexico have been caused by human activities.

The characteristics of the forest landscapes of Baja California make them very susceptible to fire, since we live in a semi-arid area with grasslands, which increases the chances of a fire spreading.
