Abstract

This project is prepared for Puerto Rico's Departamento de Recursos Naturales y Ambientales (DRNA). Background research, interviews, onsite visitations and a detailed analysis of digitized maps made it possible for the IQP team to recommend where and how the DRNA should establish biological corridors to unite state forests in Puerto Rico. The corridors will increase biodiversity within the forests and help combat deforestation on the island. The project will lead to a better public understanding of corridors and the necessity of conserving Puerto Rico's natural heritage.
