The Department of Natural and Environmental Resources of Puerto Rico has installed over 270 mooring buoys in seagrass, coral, and mangrove regions with the anticipation that they will curb boating damage and allow these natural environments to recover. To streamline buoy management, our group constructed a Geographic Information System database. This contains data we gathered at each buoy concerning its exact GPS location, condition, the recovery of the environment it is protecting, and observations of boating trends within the region.
