Open Map
This map depicts Puerto Rico's current protected terrestrial and marine resources (Natural Protected Areas), areas targeted for conservation acquisition and easements by 2033 (Map-33 PRCT), and conservation priority areas designated by Puerto Rico's DNER (Puerto Rico Conservation Priority Areas). Many Conservation Priority Areas in the Karst region (northwestern Puerto Rico) are now in conservation (either fee or easement). Much of the Conservation Priority Areas in southern Puerto Rico have not been conserved yet and are not included in Para La Naturaleza's (Puerto Rico's Conservation Trust) Map-33 plans.
