Documentation of dune systems in our urban coast

  • Monitoring of dunes, and before and after atmospheric events

  • Nesting and hatching data analysis of the Leatherback on the urban coast (Dermochelys coriacea)

  • Marine and coastal photographic documentation

  • We document damage to structures

  • Listen and inform the community

  • We recruit and train community volunteers to learn about the process

  • Sand analysis and collected data

  • We coordinate efforts to draw up restoration plans and decrease threats to ecosystems together with the organizations that collaborate and the community

Species Documentation and Coastal Forestation

Planting native an endemic coastal species to increase vegetation and thus decrease the effects of erosion. Vegetation influences many other positive aspects such as providing shade, purifying the air and serving as regulatory filters for the groundwater cycle, thanks to their long roots, they also help to withstand the sand on the beaches, avoiding drastic changes in the coasts at stabilizing the sediment. Conserving and reproducing seeds at the Coastal Plant Nursery in the Bucaré Urban Garden (BUG), at our community of Punta las Marías.

Support Conservation of the Coastal Species Through Reforestation

As coastal neighbors, professionals in marine and social sciences, with experience managing endangered species in Ocean Park and Condado (2016-2019), we analyze the scientific data related to:

  • Coastal Cleanups

  • Annual number of nesting and hatching 

  • Survival percentage

  • Causes of disorientation

  • Threats to the species

  • Protection of dunes and vegetation to keep the beach healthy

  • Guidance to the general public on light pollution and effect on the sheds

  • Analysis of the benefit of sand dunes for the nesting of sea turtles
