To enhance the chances of restoring and protecting Puerto Rico’s beaches by synthesizing guidelines and procedures on beach characterization and profiling, planting, fertilization, irrigation, maintenance, monitoring, etc. and working to identify, inventory, and prioritize beaches that need and can accommodate stabilization with vegetation, or can become sources of plants for nursery propagation and planting. Information will include all permit requirements for beach restoration projects, including those associated with beaches used by sea turtles for nesting. Within the selected prioritized beaches the CAT will develop an education & awareness program, to demonstrate benefits, address needs & expectations and promote...

The mission of the Caribbean Landscape Conservation Cooperative is to provide science and technology for conservation planning and action leading to a mutually desired landscape of the future (Nassauer and Opdam 2008, USFWS 2012). An essential component of developing a shared vision is a common understanding of the current land and seascape characteristics. This includes the distribution of Trust resources, the condition of Trust resource populations and their habitats, the governance structure impacting them, assessments of threats and vulnerabilities – tied to information on land uses, climate, ecosystem characteristics (e.g., stream flow), and potential future scenarios (Strategy 2012). This is a potentially...

An urgent problem that we, the Caribbean conservation community, need to address is how best to allocate scarce resources to conservation initiatives directed at cays. Caribbean cays are both culturally and ecologically valuable, but are highly vulnerable to climate change, sea level rise, invasive species, and human uses, including recreational and residential development. In terms of climate change impacts and sea level rise, a few low-lying coralline and mangrove cays have already become partially or completely submerged such as one in the area of Guayanilla, Puerto Rico, monitored by the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) from 1991 until it’s submergence in 2004. Five species of seabirds and shorebirds that...

The 6 week project entails using acoustic monitoring technology to provide new information on native and endemic bats of Puerto Rico toward three specific objectives listed below. Dr. Vulinec will work with USFWS, USFS, PR-DNRE, and CLCC personnel to accomplish our shared goals. Project goals will require time at the International Institute for Tropical Forestry (IITF) in San Juan, at El Yunque National Forest, and the Cabo Rojo National Wildlife Refuge.Objectives of project and deliverables expected from fellow: 1. Evaluate native and endemic bat habitat use patterns across elevation and urbanization gradients in El Yunque and the NE Corridor protected areas with an emphasis on tabanuco forests to inform climate...
