  Who are we? 

We are a Non-Profit community organization with the vision of creating a holistic social work network to analyze all the ecosystems present in Santurce and draw up a restoration and conservation plan in areas that do not have one at the moment, with the in order to maintain a sustainable social-ecological relationship.

Through the union with various organizations that have the experience and professionals we have focused our plan for the restoration and conservation of coral reefs and dunes, the reforestation and cleaning of the coasts, urban areas and wetlands together with the implementation of an effective recycling system, so in turn these will be of benefit for the proliferation of the species they harbor.

  • SANTURCE has a land area of ​​approximately 13,57 km² (8,43 mi²) and 8,96 km² (5,57 mi²) of aquatic area.

  • SANTURCE constitutes a peninsula surrounded by water everywhere, except for the 800 meter long limit (almost half mile) that separates Punta las Marías from Carolina.

  • Historically most of the lowlands, especially on the banks of existing lagoons and channels, were occupied by swamps and dense mangrove forests.

  • The most characteristic ecosystems in the Caribbean are coral reefs, these cover around 26,000 km² (10,038.6 mi²) , have 66,000 km² (25,482.7 mi²) of sea-grass meadows and around 11,560 km² (4,463.3 mi²) of mangroves.
