About Estuario

The Corporation for the Conservation of the San Juan Bay Estuary is a 501©3 non-profit organization that operates the San Juan Bay Estuary Partnership, or Estuario. The Estuario became part of the National Estuary Program (NEP) in 1994 and is the only tropical and non-continental location within the NEP under Section 320 of the Clean Water Act. The Estuario’s mission is to restore and conserve the waters and associated ecosystems of the San Juan Bay Estuary and its watershed as a sustainable axis of social and economic development. Estuario’s work is guided by a master restoration plan known as the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) for the San Juan Bay Estuary.

A total of six (6) recommendations were published including; increasing citizen knowledge and interest, promoting transparency and accountability, structure more effective ways of working, maximizing the use of funds available, achieving connections between the various actors, taking advantage of the resources that are available today discard and change the vision of what is considered “garbage” today to preserve and restore the ecosystems within the estuary system, which are threatened by obsolete waste management practices.
