The Múzquiz Museum Nonprofit Association -was established in February 2005 by palaeontology enthusiasts with the aim of safeguarding and preserving the palaeontological heritage of the region of Múzquiz, Coahuila, as well as providing a link between scholars and the general public for study and the publication of results beyond the academic realm. The collection includes Bivalvia, Ammonoidea, Crustacea, Chondrichthyes, Osteichthyes, Mosasauridae, and an artificial mold of Muzquizopteryx coahuilensis (Pterosauria); 63 of these are hypotypes and one is aplastotype. In 2008 this collection was officially recognized as part of the national heritage through its listing in the Public Registry of Archaeological Zones and Monuments of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) under the numberREG. 1680PJ, with 424 descriptive summaries, 329 of which pertain to 390 fossils. TheMúzquiz Museum is the official custodian and collaborates with INAH in protecting this heritage. Its study and dissemination of results are already bearing fruit, fulfilling the purpose for which the Múzquiz Museum Nonprofit Association was created.
