Abstract

Punta Cabullones, an unutilized area home to many endangered species, is adjacent to the impoverished community of Vallas Torres. Working with Para la Naturaleza, we developed a plan to protect the fragile ecosystems while creating economic growth for the community. By surveying the land, assessing community attitudes, and researching opportunities for economic growth, we created a proposal for community-based management and tourism in Punta Cabullones. We propose a community garden, a beekeeping initiative, trails for tourism, and educational programming.
