Estuario Weekly Update
Through our weekly update, we share opportunities for collaboration, volunteering, and work; through initiatives and actions programmed for the benefit of the ecosystems and communities of the San Juan Bay estuary. These activities, tips and information are for everyone’s benefit.
Today, Friday, April 22, 2022, is Earth Day! We thank all the citizens and collaborators who have supported the activities scheduled this week. Together we can raise awareness and establish spaces to foster conservation and restoration strategies.
Participatory Bird Census

Beyond Plastics: Problem and Solutions in Puerto Rico
Environmental justice and the changes needed to achieve it start from our communities. Therefore, we invite you to a training that covers the current state of the plastic waste crisis on the Island, what you need to know to act, the measures that have been taken from the point of view of public policy, and the platform created by already established actors. It will be provided on two dates, Friday, 13 and Saturday, May 14, 2022, from 10AM-12PM. Both dates will feature the same workshop. Register today in our portal.
