Our Work

Protecting Coral Reefs

20 years ago Surfrider Puerto Rico helped establish the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve (Rincon), one of the first community-managed reserves, and home to endangered corals.
This led to the creation of the Arrecifes de Isla Verde Marine Reserve (Carolina). We are currently promoting the creation of two new protected areas together
with local communities and organizations.
