Unlike most private land in Mexico, the reserves of the SDCC will not prohibit trespassing and use of the land. The SDCC seeks to increase local involvement, especially amongst rural communities that historically used the land now protected as SDCC reserves. For example, hunting guides could be hired to use their knowledge in tracking for the ecological study of ungulates of special concern, such as desert bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni). In a similar manner, fishermen could be hired for boat excursions to offshore islands, such as Isla San Jorge, during terrestrial and subtidal studies of island ecology.
In addition, local communities from the various villages in the proximity of Caborca will be encouraged to visit the SDCC reserves in a low-impact camping capacity.
Research facilities within the protected areas will provide opportunities for students from academic institutions to carry out ecological studies, within an array of largely intact ecosystems. (See Education/Research)
