Surfrider Foundation – Rincon Chapter

Surfrider Foundation - Rincon Chapter
Surfrider Foundation’s Rincon Chapter was originally formed in 2001 by a small group of devoted citizens in an effort to help create the Tres Palma’s Marine Reserve (RMTP). RMTP is a flagship project aimed at protecting the rich coastal diversity of Puerto Rico. The region is home to the last healthy and genetically diverse strands of elkhorn coral (acropora palmata).

In 2009 Surfrider’s Rincon Chapter became the first official chartered chapter of the Surfrider Foundation in a predominantly Spanish-speaking territory.

Today, Rincon continues to promote and carry out citizen-science and grassroots environmental projects. Their activities include beach cleanups, tree planting, waste management, and youth outreach. Most noteworthy, the Rincon Chapter is also the only community-based water monitoring program in Puerto Rico. Further, in the aftermath of 2017’s Hurricane Maria, Surfrider’s Rincon Chapter was the only active water monitoring body on the island of Puerto Rico. Beachgoers can access the chapter’s monitoring results on radio, social media, public notice boards, and the Blue Water Task Force website. Beach goers can also find test results on Swim Guide.
