Salina Los Cobos Conservation Reserve
Making a Difference by Acquiring Ecologically Sensitive Land
In 2015, Alelí Environmental purchased 21 acres of coastal lands in Lajas Puerto Rico for their preservation. Our long-term goals for Salina Los Cobos are to design and establish a self-sustained small-scale ecotourism and aquaculture program focused on coastal resource conservation and sustainability; an internship research program; and a citizen science program to monitor the Monsieur José Bioluminescent Bay, as very little is known about this type of unique ecosystems.
