BREAKING: Aftermath of Hurricane Maria


In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria the BioBay has darkened.
 we are raising funds to repair the monitoring station that was damaged in the hurricane. Once our data collection system is up and running we will turn our efforts to managing the bays recovery. 


For more details on the aftermath of Hurricane Maria on the BioBay and the whole island of Vieques please read our News section. 

The Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust helps manage the BioBay through outreach, conservation, and research.


The world renowned BioBay of Vieques, Puerto Rico, is a sight that draws visitors from around the globe. Help us ensure this treasure is well looked after, now and into the future.
The BioBay is threatened by increased use, light pollution, encroaching development,  and global warming. We aim to protect the bay and the surrounding mangrove forest from inappropriate development, overuse, and pollution, but we cannot achieve our goals alone. Find out how you can help.

Our program is made successful by people like you.

[The Bay] has muddy brown waters, and sure there’s a few insects, but the secret is you have to stay up and check it out at night. It hides something really special.
