To enhance the chances of restoring and protecting Puerto Rico’s beaches by synthesizing guidelines and procedures on beach characterization and profiling, planting, fertilization, irrigation, maintenance, monitoring, etc. and working to identify, inventory, and prioritize beaches that need and can accommodate stabilization with vegetation, or can become sources of plants for nursery propagation and planting.

Within the selected prioritized beaches the CAT will develop an education & awareness program, to demonstrate benefits, address needs & expectations and promote involvement and a sense of stewardship of stakeholders (community, managers, elected officials). Also, workers of each individual selected beach will have access to our proposed Best Beach Management Practices Guide, related to dune creation and stabilization Planting & Beach Management guidance document given a template and technical supported will be offered and performed if needed and when possible.
