In some countries in tropical underdeveloped regions, the authentic effectiveness of protected natural areas (PNA) has been minimal, and sometimes opposed to the main objectives of these areas, generating as a consequence the loss of environmental, social and economic services. At the operational level, one of the key elements in PNA planning is the delimitation of its borders; within the different environmental management actions are integrated. However, PNA planning has to go beyond the physical borders, and consider the aspects that can improve management effectiveness. This paper presents a case study which poses the integration of various types of figures of interest in conservation, in the definition of a unique unit of environmental management, a PNA, which incorporates the socio-environmental values of that region of Michoacán State.
