The Izta-Popo Zoquiapan National Park are two national parks, the Iztaccíhuatl-Popocatépetl and the Zoquiapan, which were merged for being a part of the same biological corridor. The Izta-Popo Zoquiapan National Park lies on the borders of Mexico and Puebla, about 60 km from Mexico City , Mexico . The park includes a part of the transmexican volcanic belt with many volcanoes. The second and third highest mountains of Mexico - the Popocatepetl and the Ixtaccíhuatl can be found in this area. The Hacienda de Zoquia including Zoquiapan, Ixtlahuacán, and the river Río Frío are also parts of the park. The Izta-Popo Zoquiapan National Park was founded in 1935. It covers an area of 45,000 ha. The vegetation of the park is mostly mixed, there are oaks and pines, but we can find here prairies, as well. The rarity of the Izta-Popo Zoquiapan National Park is the area lying in the subtropical zone. The Izta-Popo Zoquiapan National Park protects nearly 1,000 species of plants and endangered species of mammals, such as: puma, lynx and coati. The volcanic corridors serve as a resting place for migratory birds travelling to the Persian Gulf and the Pacific.
