Puerto Rico Sea Grant
Every twelve days there is a drowning in Puerto Rico. Our project's aim was to increase water safety and lower the drowning rate by developing a plan for implementing a lifeguard program in the Condado neighborhood, which is home to the most popular and dangerous beaches on the island. With the help of our sponsor, we evaluated funding options to support a lifeguard program. We believe that the results portrayed the importance and feasibility of advancing this program.
