The volcano is home to a diverse ecosystem with a wide variety of flora and fauna. At its top are glaciers that have shrunk in recent years due to global warming. There have been 41 confirmed eruptions in Popocatepetl’s history, the last of which occurred on April 21, 2023, causing ash fall in several municipalities in the states of Mexico City, Morelos and Puebla.
