Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan of the Estuario de la Bahía de San Juan (CCMP)

The Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan of the Estuario de la Bahía de San Juan (CCMP) is the master document that guides our work. It is a product of an arduous process of scientific and civic research and analysis of the Management Conference established in 1993.
