We have been recognized as leaders in marine conservation and restoration along our members as part of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and Habitat Advisory Panel of the Caribbean Fishery Management Council. SAM is also part of the Coral Restoration Consortium, Latin American Coral Reef Restoration Consortium, the Puerto Rican Coral Reef Restoration Consortium, and the Association of the Marine Laboratories of the Caribbean. The success of our science-based approach in restoration is supported by over 30 peer-review publications in the last five years.
SAM maintains a growing network of collaborative interagency level support, both from Puerto Rico’s State and Municipal agencies, as well as Federal institutions, NGOs, and private organizations. It also maintains strong collaborative efforts with academia, including universities from Puerto Rico, the United States, Central America, and South America.
