This past month, volunteer leaders of the DUNAS project helped lead the local community in collecting 166 pounds of trash from the coastal sites around the dunes.
Team members worked hard to organize 85 community members to pick up and remove trash from the local beaches they regularly use and enjoy. Team members spent time to talk about the ecological, cultural, and social importance of the beaches and other habitats in the reserve, and encourage them to use and enjoy the space in a responsible manner. Team members provided one garbage bag per group and ended up with 166 pounds of trash that was taken out of the reserve.
Congratulations to the DUNAS team for their efforts to protect the
natural spaces of Puerto Rico!
This project is made possible through a 2018 Climate Adaptation Fund grant from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) entitled, “Puerto Rico se Levanta: Learning from extreme events to build and sustain a resilient future". Support to establish the Climate Adaptation Fund was provided by a grant to the WCS from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
