SJBEP staff took various media outlets on a field trip to see firsthand the impact that Hurricane Maria had on the estuary ecosystems. This trip resulted in an article published on the local newspaper Metro Puerto Rico. The title was Manglares: barrera protectora contra huracanes. The article covers the importance of the estuary as a natural barrier in case of natural hazards like hurricane María. It also resulted in coverage from local news stations WAPA and Telemundo.
