Puerto Rican coral reefs have been experiencing degradation, and the Departamento de Recursos Naturales y Ambientales wants to protect them. The goal of this project was to identify the environmental and human-related stressors on these reefs in order to recommend ways to monitor their health and protect them. Using archival research, interviews and GIS maps we identified trends in reef health at selected monitoring sites. We concluded that the DRNA should control pollution, prevent mechanical damage, and increase public awareness about the importance of reefs.
