The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico (Fideicomiso de Conservación de Puerto Rico) has combined resources to implement a comprehensive citizen science program for individuals ages 12 and older. This project targets local residents, visitors to Hacienda La Esperanza Reserve, and members of the community. This video documents six citizen science environmental projects: archeology and human impacts on local ecosystems; conservation and restoration of wetlands; seed dispersal by bats and birds; ecology of coastal land crabs; flowering and fruiting patterns of local flora; and shoreline and coastal processes.
