"This report summarizes our training and Best Management Practice (BMP) implementation project in Culebra, PR. Culebra is a small 6 square mile island off the east coast of Puerto Rico where nearshore coral reefs are being impacted by often poorly controlled development, tourism (the main industry on the island) and fishing impacts. The area is a jurisdictional priority for coral reef protection as it contains some of the finest reef diversity in Puerto Rico, the Luis Pena marine reserve and many quality reef areas that can be accessed from shore"--Summary.
