Chiricahua National Monument is located 50 miles north of Mexico and is one of the most biodiverse regions in North America. Surrounded by the Sonoran and Chiricahuan Deserts, the Chiricahua National Monument is composed of seven distinct habitats which host a vast number of animal and plant species. The interesting blend of local and exotic makes Chiricahua one of the most biodiverse regions in North America. The Apache fox squirrel and coatimundis - related to the raccoon - Mexican chickadees, sulphur-bellied flycatchers, and other immigrants from Mexican deserts have taken up residency in the Monument.
