    SIGNIFICANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

    During the U.S. Coral Reef Task Force's Watershed Partnership Initiative Working Group monthly call, it was announced that part of the benthic characterization data collected for the reef associated with the Manati River watershed, as part of the Human Impact to Coastal Ecosystems in Puerto Rico (HICE-PR) project, may be used by the Puerto Rico Dept. of Natural and Environmental Resources to support the establishment of the "Underwater Gardens" Marine Reserve in the north coast of Puerto Rico.

    KEY MEETINGS/EVENTS AND ATTENDEES

    Juan L. Torres-Perez and Liane Guild will participate in a Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) workshop as part of the HICE-PR project in Puerto Rico from July 13-17, 2015.  The SWAT model will be applied to one of the main watersheds of the island to study impacts of land cover/land use changes in the sediment regime of the Manati River in the north coast and potential impacts to the coastal ecosystems associated with this watershed.

    PRESS
    Juan L. Torres-Perez was interviewed during the past week by a reporter for El Nuevo Dia, the main newspaper in Puerto Rico.  As part of their Science section, the newspaper highlighted the HICE-PR project's efforts to study the ecosystem of the north coast of the island.  Link (in Spanish): http://www.elnuevodia.com/ciencia/ciencia/nota/estudianimpactohumanoenecosistemascosterosdelaisla-2061653/
